Poisoning of feral Rock Pigeons (Columba livia) takes place quite often in housing estates, a means of pest control carried out by town councils in response to complaints from residents about pigeons.

On Halloween night, we have to say that one the scariest things for our officers (and the animals) is to find an animal stuck on glue. Thankfully, Abracadabra, the Feral Pigeon (Columba livia) was released following a couple of cleaning sessions. But Carmen, the Javan Myna (Acridotheres javanicus) rescued today, has gotten very badly stuck to the glue, and we hope that Carmen pulls through this.

Please, please help to spread the word not to use glue boards/traps for any animals

Pearl, a young Rock Pigeon (Columba livia) was rescued with severe injuries to her head, and eyes – possibly from another animal attack. Our hearts sank looking at the injuries and the pain, despite such fights being natural in the wild world. Even though we had hope to treat the injuries, Pearl was already very thin and unfortunately she did not make it through the night.
