Members should consider that training – whether as part of an essential journey or not – will result in pigeons straying and/or becoming injured. This may lead to pigeons falling into the care of non-fanciers who are unable to care for the bird. This WILL result in a journey that is totally unavoidable, whether it is the owner collecting the bird, or the non-fancier delivering the bird to a vet or a nearby fancier, thereby increasing the risk of spreading the virus and placing lives at risk.
Anyone training during this period will be dealt with under RPRA rules relating to dishonourable conduct.
