City council approves deal with crow hazing company

Local News

For the next three winters, Loomacres Wildlife Management will be paid just over $5,000 a year to once again haze crows in the city of Watertown.

City Council approved the deal with the company based out of Warnerville.

Loomacres mostly uses pyrotechnics to scare the birds off, although last winter air rifles were brought in to kill about 20 of them.

According to the Watertown Daily Times, it will also add birds of prey to the arsenal this winter.

The latest round of crow hazing should begin at some point in early to mid-December.
