Birds In a Barrel – Where Did NYC’s Pigeon’s Go?
..NYC Pigeon ..................................
Love them or hate them, pigeons are a part of New York City’s ever-changing urban landscape. No matter what the season, this resilient bird can be found in flocks far and wide—from your local park to the tops of the most opulent buildings. And while these birds are not universally loved by all New Yorkers (‘rats with wings’ is one of the milder terms used for them) many New Yorkers were shocked and angered when allegations that some of their boids may have been kidnapped off of city streets and sold for pigeon ‘hunts’ in rural Pennsylvania.At least one group, S.H.A.R.K. (“Showing Animals Respect and Kindness”) is taking on the pigeon shooters. In this week’s episode of ‘Pets In the City’, we interview Stu Chaifetz, an activist with S.H.A.R.K. Listen in for a rather incredible tale of alleged political intrigue, corruption, and animal cruelty in Berks County, Pennsylvania.
