Is it legal for me to trap a pigeon?
For quite some time the New York Bird Club has been worried with the matter of pigeon meshes in the New York City zone. Hungry pigeons are baited with food, netted and dumped into a van and after that supposedly sold to out of state pigeon shoots and eateries as a fee for the menu. The Humane Society of the US in Washington, DC has taken a shot at the Hegins pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania for a considerable length of time. Pennsylvania is the last state to permit the merciless routine of pigeon shoots to proceed.
Despite the fact that the general population has communicated sensitivity, shock and sympathy toward pigeons and there have been spectators, to date the New York Bird Club has not got any unmistakable data to swing over to the District Attorney's office who have communicated an enthusiasm for the circumstance. A few persons have endeavored to document dissensions with the New York Police Department, however they declined to participate and Incident Reports were not taken.
The New York Bird Club reached the Civilian Complaint Review Board to document a protest against the New York City Police Department, yet they would not acknowledge it. When we can build up definitely what the law is concerning expelling pigeons from their territory, we will be remaining on firmer ground.
Laws concerning pigeons are vague and hard to discover since pigeons are not viewed as local natural life, and laws that secure untamed life don't matter to pigeons since they are not indigenous to the United States. Government organizations we ought to be worried with are New York City Department of Agriculture and Market, the Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York City Department of Health.
