AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The city of Amsterdam will begin to scare away crows on Tuesday.
“We have a tremendous amount of crows. There are 18,000 of them roosting behind city hall,” said Mayor Michael Cinquanti stated.
Wildlife biologists and several other agencies will safely scare the crows starting on Tuesday and ending on Friday. Some methods they will use include pyrotechnics and lasers.
Officials said residents should keep their garbage cans closed so the crows don’t start feeding at their home. If it does happen, they said to use a bright flashlight to scare them off.
“There is no guarantee that the crows will not return. But once again we will be left with instruments that we can use if they do come back. We can use it without spending any more money,” said Cinquanti.
