Rock Springs One, a homeowners’ association (HOA) in
Mesquite, Nevada, is considering the use of notorious poison Avitrol to kill pigeons
and other birds living in its neighborhood. PETA informed the management about
the cruelty of Avitrol, but we’re told that poisoning remains on the table. Reportedly,
the HOA is voting on this issue soon!

Lethal methods don’t work and will actually backfire.
Whenever birds are killed or removed, a spike in the food supply results, which
causes accelerated breeding among survivors and newcomers. Populations then increase!
Furthermore, Avitrol is horribly cruel. It causes disorientation, convulsions,
and a slow, agonizing death. Pest-control
companies often tell clients that Avitrol only “scares birds away,”
but this is flatly untrue. And dogs,
cats, and “nontarget” wildlife can die after consuming the bodies of
poisoned birds.

Please politely
urge Rock Springs One HOA officials to refrain from poisoning birds and to
stick with humane and effective bird control methods instead.
