How Do We Control the Pigeon Problem?

AIR DATE: July 8, 2010

Watch out, pigeons... there's a new cop in town! The Nevada Pigeon Control is a local business that pledges to contain the pigeon problem. They've got uniforms, cages, and air guns... all aimed at cutting down on the number of winged beasts. They say the county isn't taking care of the bird problem. But Clark County says it will use pigeon birth control pills. Why are pigeons such a problem in Southern Nevada? Why are casinos hiring uniformed men with air guns? And why are so many groups all aflutter over the best way to handle this controversy? We talk to a "pigeon cop" and others tackling bird control. Fly into the conversation below.

GUEST
Nephi Oliva, Founder, Nevada Pigeon Control, and former bounty hunter
