The inhumane culling methods used in pigeon control include:
1. Shooting. This leaves the majority of birds wounded.
2. Poisoning. Is not only a slow and painful death but also effects other animals in the food chain.
Scientific research shows that these methods are completely ineffective as other birds take over the area within days.
Pest control companies are aware of this but continue to promote this practice as it creates more business.
Humane methods include spikes and wire systems which prevent roosting and nesting.
Feeding by people is also a major problem. The more abundant the food source the more pigeons breed. So educating the public is also important.
