Re: Airguns for crows?
Nothing new there, Crow roosts in populated areas ave been a problem in PA for years. Back in the 60s and 70s there was an annual crow shoot at the Ontelaunee watershed in Reading. It was a huge event and hunters came from all over including other states to participate. They hauled the dead crows away with dump trucks. Reason, they were contaminating the reservoir with droppings in the run off. In the late 70s and 80s, Lititz there was an invitational crow shoot held in the Boro annually because of the mess from crow droppings. Most recently in Lancaster Co. the UDSA poisoned crows as part of program to get rid of crows that were roosting on the roofs of stores and in the trees at Park City shopping center. People were getting straffed with droppings as they walked from their vehicles to the stores and the parking lots and vehicles were coverd with droppings. They now are moving the birds to other areas to roost with bright lights which attracts the crows. Same old stuff, different state.
