While most "nouveau riche" happily spend their new money on shit the old money has already deemed acceptable, China's spoiled young princelings aren't content with horses, sports cars, and insanely tacky watches alone. In tribute to the intrepid bootleggers who've propped up their country's market economy, China's rich have taken arguably the worst bird of all time, the pigeon, and slapped a Louis Vuitton logo on it. Racing pigeons are the new thoroughbreds here, with birds auctioned for hundreds of thousands of dollars apiece and races netting millions for the championship flock. Which sucks for the old timers, whose balcony-bred birds don't stand a chance against these million-dollar superflocks. And which just sucks in general because, well, pigeons. Fucking pigeons.

No way that was a million worth of pigeons... You could buy 10 for $500 and breed that many. Im from michigan and a white release dove/Racing pigeon walked in my garage and i took him in. Thats what brought me here apparently theres alot of Americans in Michigan Racing them too.

In Australia, Pigeon racers illegally trap and kill thousands of Native Falcons to protect their Pigeons.

this was a good story.. but the interviewer is like a moron.

This guy was negative and sad from the start. Had zero appreciation for Chinese culture and people. The rich man treated him and his team with genuine warmth and hospitality but this guy displayed no positive emotion or appreciation.
