Nicobar Pigeon

I was under the impression its fate was already decided, Anthea. Apparently
it’s on a list of dangerous species.
Is this correct? Why on earth should a quite rare species like Nicobar Pigeon be deemed dangerous? I can only assume it’s some paranoia about disease, in which case all migrant shorebirds and vagrants should be culled immediately to keep us all safe.
