Crow hazing to start back up

Local News

After being delayed earlier this week, another round of crow hazing is planned for tonight and Tuesday.

Travel difficulties due to the heavy lake effect snow last week led to the postponement.

City officials say contractors from Loomacres Wildlife Management will be on hand to conduct hazing operations.

That will include the use of pyrotechnics, lasers, air rifles, and other devises.

Meanwhile, city officials are trying to figure out what led to the deaths of several crows recently.

A number of the birds were found deceased recently under a tree located between City Hall and Flower Memorial Library.

Loomacres has not employed lethal methods recently.

It’s suspected a virus may be to blame.
