Default killing pigeons

I need to kill some pigeons. Any ideas. I could care less if it's illegal.

I have tried ant poison, and decon rat/mouse killer as well as automotive
anti freeze.

Thanks,

cm

They are stupid and you can get them to commit suicide very easily. Get
some pigeon food. Go out on the ledge where they roost. Show it to them.
Step off the ledge and they will follow you.

It's futile. As some great warrior once said: "The penis is mightier than
the sword," by which he meant that your enemy can breed faster than you can
kill them.

That said, there is a certain satisfaction by stacking up the bodies. To be
effective, you must consider their milieu. For example, one NY taxi driver
worked out a system whereby he would slow down as he approached a pigeon,
then stomp on the accelerator. The pigeon thought the taxi was going to give
him the right-of-way and was lulled into a sense of complacency. As a
result, the taxi got too close for the pigeon to respond to the taxi's
surge. The cab driver giggled like a little girl, removed the pigeon from
the grillwork, and added another silhouette to the front fender.

Obviously the taxi-driver's technique won't work on 34th-story window ledge.

There are several techniques he

But the list is not exhaustive. It does not include, for example, pet hawks
or even paper-mache owls.

My favorite is a bolt-action .22 rifle with sub-sonic bullets; it's nearly
silent.

When I was young we were shooing pigeons in my friends barn, after a
big rain his dad nearly shot us, it had a metal roof.
