ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - The city of Aberdeen is taking aim at pesky pigeons in the city.

The City Council on Monday approved a $7,250 contract with a professional to eliminate nesting sites and trap the birds.

City Manager Lynn Lander says the Aberdeen Downtown Association has contracted with another person to reduce the number of pigeons through a netting program, but the population of the birds has still grown from an estimated 1,500 to 3,500.

Lander says each female pigeon can live up to 10 years and produce 20 offspring each year.
