STOP POISONING PIGEONS IN NEW ORLEANS- Avitrol in French Market!
Please Sign HERE
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge you to act now to stop the poisoning of pigeons in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Complaints, and photos of dying pigeons believed to be poisoned with Avitrol, have been piling in from concerned citizens working in the French Market. As of May 15, 2015, we are talking firm action to prevent this cruel and painful method of extermination from ever happening again in the City of New Orleans, Louisiana. “Pigeon poisoning is a felony in the State of Louisiana” one investigator with the New Orleans SPCA stated to me. As concerned citizens, we will push for maximum penalty. Is money and tourism more important then the wildlife of Louisiana? New Orleans residents think not and want the poisoning to stop immediately.
Avitrol is also known to be toxic to humans. What about the possibility of threats to our community unaware that they are being subjected to the poison? Possibility of sickness or death could occur without the victims ever knowing is was Avitrol.

Katrina Perkowska of Kasia’s Ark Bird Rescue in Louisiana says, “They don’t understand that they’re not just killing pigeons, but hundreds of other species of birds as well. This makes me sick to my stomach!”

that some humans

we just want to live our lives,

that are overrated.
