THE SIDELINES : Wrestler’s Heft Behind Pigeons

<i> From Times Wire Services </i>

A masked professional wrestler who calls himself “Super Ecologist” has begun a fight for the imperiled pigeons of the Hermosillo cathedral, the government’s Notimex news agency reported.

The agency said Sunday the wrestler, who refuses to give his actual name, is staging a sit-in before the cathedral to demand the removal of Father Julio Cesar Castillo, who has been poisoning pigeons in the church.

Notimex said he vowed to carry his protest to Pope John Paul II if the church takes no action.
