Some namby-pamby tossers in the capital city want to waste a lot of public money on a chemical solution to the pigeon problem.
Problem, at least, if you don’t much like pigeons.
Alf would prefer them to the drunks and dope fiends who make bits of the Wellington city centre a no-go zone for civilized persons.
Bird crap does not make the same disgusting mess as a vomiting inebriate or junkie.
But there are people who reckon Wellington’s pigeon population is out of control.
And some of them say it’s time to look at contraception or feeding bans.
