A friend told me this morning, after reading my pigeon post that these pests can be ‘detonated’ by feeding them aspirin. Not that I want to try! However, out of curiosity I googled for ‘aspirin on pigeons’ and found this very amusing webpage at halfbakery.com discussing wild ideas on how to eradicate the creatures. Comments on the page say it is alka-seltzers which cause them to explode or calcium carbide can also be used.

I am also curious on the views of animal rights activists have in regards to the feral pigeon. On another note I recall one of my cousins calling me up one day, frantically telling me she was assaulted on a school outing whilst going through the Botanical Gardens in Sydney by a pigeon that left a splatter in her hair.
