Their coos may be an annoyance to many, but one man’s actions to try and deter pigeons from his area resulted in a talking to from the RCMP.

Drayton Valley Mounties say on May 1 just before 11:30 a.m. on 50th Avenue in Brazeau County a report came in of an individual shooting a gun at pigeons in a neighboring yard.

Several members attended the scene due to the potential seriousness of the situation. A man was located and police advised him of the risks involved with shooting any type of firearm in a residential neighborhood.

Safer options to remove pesky pigeons from invading your space include placing a decoy owl or hawk, wind chime or an aluminum foil pan on your deck or patio.
