According to a newpaper report I read many years ago, a company in Western Australia actually wanted to train pigeons to sort things (screws or bolts, or something similar) in a production line. The idea was rejected when it was considered a form of animal cruelty. Apparently it wasn't 'cruel' to have people do it instead though...
