Bird handlers are devastated after a mind-boggling 5000 homing pigeons seemingly disappeared during a race across the UK.

“We’ve seen one of the very worst ever racing days in our history,” pigeon hobbyist Richard Sayers wrote in a Facebook post chronicling the feathery fiasco, which occurred Saturday after 9000 racing birds took off from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, on a journey to the northeast.
