Seeking Solutions To New York's Pigeon Problem

A city councilman in New York City is looking to counteract the city's pigeon problem by charging a $1,000 fine to anyone caught feeding the birds.

"Don't feed the pigeons or else. A new pigeon plan is in the works that includes the creation of -- get this -- a pigeon czar."

"New York City is a smorgasbord for pigeons, but something could break that bread line."

"Councilman Simcha Felder wants pigeon feeders to pay. His plan is modeled after one in London where the fine is $1,000, to minimize the fluttering and flinging of filth."

"All over New York there are places that are virtual bird buffets. Pigeons scramble to get snacks out of horse feed buckets in Central Park. What is there to do about this problem? Maybe one day soon we'll get to ask the pigeon czar."
