Back in 2001 the then London Mayor Ken Livingstone announced his plans to reduce the number of pigeons in Trafalgar Square.
But not everyone was a fan of the idea. Animal rights group PETA argued the decision would “spell disaster for London’s pigeon population”.
It became a massive deal, with news of the pigeons’ plight even reaching the US.
Protests began and one advertising company saw the opportunity to join in and get some attention at the same time.
They sent people dressed as giant pigeons to hold up traffic near Trafalgar Square.
That must have got road users in a flap!
