LIVINGSTON, Mont. (AP) - Officials in Livingston are trying to decide how to address the city’s growing pigeon population but are left wondering if they have public support.

Just three people attended a meeting of Livingston’s Pigeon Task Force on Thursday.

Park County Sanitarian Barbara Woodbury says pigeon management efforts might be abandoned if there isn’t enough community support.

Lots of people are complaining about the birds. Woodbury tells the Livingston Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1uPtlxS) a railroad underpass and vacant building are the two main pigeon roosting areas in town.

She says the most economically feasible and effective method to control pigeon numbers would be to give the birds feed laced with a birth control drug.

No future meetings of the Pigeon Task Force are scheduled, however.
