Pigeon racing is a hobby in many parts of USA even though
not too many people know about it, especially the deaf
Benny Maucere, Los Angeles, CA, was interviewed by
DeafDigest Sports editor on his involvement with
homing pigeon racing. He was serious about it even though
many of his deaf friends thought it was amusing!
He started racing pigeons as a 10-year old kid but
stopped it as he pursued other interests. Then
he got back with it again, with the help of
hearing friends in the homing pigeon racing
He spent a lot of time and money raising, training
and racing these pigeons, paying for such expenses
out of his pockets. Cash winnings on these pigeon
races do not offset the costs.
He passed away few years ago.
