For The Birds

Americans who are unhappy with what Hollywood produces now have someone else to blame: pigeons. And residents who are star-struck, and are tired of being struck by something else, have a novel solution:
Hollywood residents believe they've found a humane way to reduce their pigeon population and the messes the birds make: the pill.

Over the next few months a birth control product called OvoControl P, which interferes with egg development, will be placed in bird food in new rooftop feeders.

"We think we've got a good solution to a bad situation," said Laura Dodson, president of the Argyle Civic Association, the group leading the effort to try the new contraceptive. "The poop problem has become unmanageable and this could be the answer."

Hooray for Hollywood.

But where is Tippy Hedren when we need her?
