Circus dove found in Dandenong



SIMON TAIT

Local News18 Oct 10 @ 10:49am by Gilbert Gardiner
ONE of the three doves stolen from Silvers Circus in Noble Park has been found.
The dove affectionately called Baldy, for obvious reasons, was found in a backyard in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.
Baldy was handed in to Mount Waverley’s Animal Emergency Centre, and later identified by illusionist Simon Tait.
``I opened the box and just couldn’t believe it was him,” Tait said.
Two doves named Donald and Daisy remain at large. The breeding pair have matching green bands on their wings.
The doves went missing from the backstage area of Silvers Circus last Saturday, based in Noble Park for three weeks.
Magician, illusionist Simon Tait believes his “little mates, and work colleagues’’ went missing between 8.30pm-9.45pm.
“I love them; they’re the most beautiful gentle birds. So sweet and they trust me so much.
“I hope to goodness if someone has stolen them they’re treating them with love and care.’’
Mr Tait holds grave fears for the birds’ safety in the wild.
“They probably have no fear of cats or dogs. I’m terrified about their wellbeing
