Meet the Pigeon With Unflinching Love for a Man!
Andy Maw bought a pigeon at his home after taking pity on the bedraggled bird when it turned up on his doorstep after a storm.

And now Pokey, the little pigeon has fallen in love with its rescuer.

"It sounds crazy but she's fallen head over heels for me." The Sun quoted Andy as saying. 
The 42-year-old, who is also a dad of four, revealed that the pigeon literally attacks his wife Trude if she goes near him; sits on Andy's car dashboard for drives; uses the family toilet if it needs to go indoors; settles on Andy's knee when he takes a bath and stalks him if he tries to spend time alone.

"When Pokey is on her mating cycle and lays her eggs on her little bed in the bathroom, she sits on them for three weeks," he said.

"But when that part of the cycle is over and she wants a mate she comes after me and sexually harasses me. 

"She will fly over for me to caress her beak, peck my fingers and strut about puffing up her chest to deter females," he added.

Pigeon expert Prof Danial Haag-Wackernagel, of the University of Basel in Switzerland, said: "Pokey is 'imprinted' to Andy as a mate."
