this really really is the most inhumane way to deal with pigeons i think. I went to the cinema last night and whilst i was waiting for my date i was looking at the signs to see what showing. I looked right at the top to see a load of those horrible thin spikes and a pigeon impaled on them. I whinced a bit but presumed it was dead only to see the poor thing struggling and trying to dislodge itself. I was so upset about it. Surely cleaning some pigeon shit off a sign is easier than uctually having to get a ladder up to pull a whole dead bird off??
Yes before you all start, pigeons are a nuiscance i admit and they dont do much good but to see a live animal caught up like that is something i dont think should be happening. the poor things are alive for days before they just bleed to death. Surely there is another way to just prevent them landing there in the first place.
I remember i saw this for the first time in southampton high street whilst in university. I was so upset by it i actually got a mate to bunk me up whilst pissed so i could get the poor thing off. The fucking law turned up and gave me a warning for being pissed and disorderly.
