Eager to reduce the neighborhood pigeon population and the “mess” that comes with it, Hollywood residents appear ready to try a new birth control method on their wild birds. I hope the birds aren’t Catholic or they’re going to be really angry. Oh wait. It’s Hollywood. There’s no Catholics there.
Beginning within the next couple of months, a substance called OvoControl P will be placed in kibble in new rooftop feeders, say residents local officials. The substance, which interferes with egg development, will lower the birthrate of the birds, which many residents consider a nuisance.
Here’s my favorite quote of the piece. You just can’t beat something like this.
