I realize La Crosse has a pigeon problem that must be addressed, but I also believe there is a more humane and safe way to address it.
The method may be a "quick fix," but doesn't necessarily solve the problem. La Crosse plans to poison them, net them and then, if I understand correctly, shoot them. Is this the humane way to attack this problem, and how can we guarantee that this poison will not find its way to other creatures, including our pets?
At Birdbgone.com, for one, they show how to eliminate nesting and perching areas for pigeons. This to me seems to be a more effective plan and probably longer range. Maybe La Crosse should rethink their method.
