We manage commercial property within Chch and have been having major problems with the huge numbers of pigeons that have taken over the inner city. They present a significant HSE problem and Council needs to take urgent action to address the issue. Buildings are being damaged and tenants are being affected by lice. Section 53 of The Wildlife Act, 1953, lists feral pigeons as a pest species, and entitles local councils to remove them from public places. See which provides details of how the problem is being dealt with in Hamilton. Urgent action is required.
