Pigeon Patrol came across this sad story on how pigeon deterrents were not used but fire was used to kill Fifty pigeons on an East pigeon patrol fireCleveland allotment in the early hours of this morning.  Fire crews were called to the allotments in Liverton Mines at about 12.30am. They used two hose reels to extinguish the blaze, which they said killed approximately 50 pigeons and damaged the pigeon loft.

A police spokeswoman said: “Enquirers are ongoing to determine the cause of the fire.”  Using simple bird or pigeon deterrents, like bird spikes, bird netting, Ultrasonic repellers to get rid of the birds from roosting may have helped save these pigeons lives.
