hmmm, maybe someone was trying to hunt pigeons?
Although I can't for the life of me pinpoint where they'd get such a crazy idea...
thats a dart from a blowgun. They sell them at any sporting goods store. I used to have one as a kid
@3, thanks for the scoop.
Animal abusers eventually graduate to domestic violence and child abuse. It's worth while to track these creeps down.
Say what you will about pigeons, but I actually see a huge issue with people firing darts in a well populated city.
So what are the legally accepted ways of deterring/removing pigeons in the city/county? We get pigeons and then crows that like to roost under our eves. I don't mind the birds, but I do mind the TONS OF CRAP they leave on our driveway below. It's not a safe place for my young nieces to play around anymore.
That is about the dumbest shit I have ever heard.
Yeah, I guess if you enjoy torturing animals like dogs and cats like dalmer used to, then sure.
But hunting, fishing, etc... does not lead to domestic violence.
Another typical ignorant seattlite cosmo faggy response.
Fuck the pigeons, they are dirty, carry disease and make huge messes. If shotgun blasts were legal in the city limits, I'd have a blast.
What ECCE said. Plus the fact that they are an exotic species not native wildlife.
@8, The problem here is not that someone has reason to eliminate the pigeons, but that the method chosen appears to be inhumane and more effective as a torture device.
#10 it isn't inhumane.
It may be inefficient, but it isn't inhumane. These are FUCKING PIGEONS!
You can't legally fire a gun in the city limits (accept under very special circumstances). You can't shoot the fuckers, you can't poison them without risking cats and dogs.
The best way is a pellet gun or wrist rocket (but then you might miss and hurt someone)
I think the blowguns are inefficient for the job, but it must be somewhat satisfying to the shooter to see these flying rats with a dart sticking out of there heads. I can't say that I blame him.
My first instinct was to blame Brendan "Urban Hunt" Kiley.
I didn't post comments #8 and #11. I'm a misanthrope, and I particularly hate women. But I have nothing against animals.
Please delete #8 and #11.
I saw one with a yellow needle. I am pretty sure that they are just punks. Pierced pigeon punks.
#13 is a sock puppet. Please delete the post.
In addition, Kesh, why can't you use your real name instead of using mine?
secure logins NOW!
As I've said before, I have never sock puppeted you. Take your sniveling, prissy, hypocritical bitchiness and go fuck yourself. After all, no one else is going to do it.
By the way, I said Fnarf could call me kesh. I did not give leave for you to do so. Make a note of it.
I quick IP check will determine that one.
Oh, and how about posting something that doesn't have to do with me? Can't do it?
I know, it's hard. I have become your Jesus.
Let it go, Kesh. Please.
I say go at the source of the problem and blow darts at the people who feed pigeons.
I call bullshit until some photos pop up.
Winged Rats aren't that dumb.
eh, i have *.thestranger.com photos blocked with firefox but checked out that crappy one with IE. Still doesn't look like proof. Maybe they'll get aggressive like this guy:
That's funny, I actually thought #13 was keshmeshi.
Thats because it is.
She has pulled this all weekend. She thinks she is original, funny, or somehow "getting" me.
yet another twenty something with an inferiority complex about her weight (her words, not mine).
Being a fat activist, while hating being fat requires so much brain power just to get through the day, she is doing permanent damage to herself.
Kesh, either lose the weight, or learn to love yourself the way you are. Or get into chubby porn. Despite being a lesbian, there are plenty of jobs for young impressionable fat girls to make a living in strait porn.
#18, when you become this emotionally invested in your response, the troll has already won. Give it a rest, already, you've been writing these silly comments for nearly a week now.
Four days is nearly a week? Interesting.
And, believe it or not, I'm not emotionally invested. It is possible to spew vitriol without actually believing in it. See #25 for a clear cut example.
Keshmesh, we're all on your side, but we want it to go away, and you're making it certain that it will stay. Just ignore it. Let it do the worst it can do, with no reaction. It's the only thing that will work. Trust me.
Fine, I'll try it your way. But the only true troll deterrents I've seen are banning or a piling on from every other commenter. In my experience, nothing else works.
Considering I am not a troll, how does acting like a total prick make any sense?
You have not posted one relevant response to anything. You are nothing more than an internet stalker.
What a horrible, pointless thing to do.
Compared to humans, pigeons are harmless. I mean, who produces more toxic crap than us?
Yeah, and they aren't even half as annoying as crows.
Why can't we call fat activists "fativists" or "fativistas"?
Anyway, I think dartheaded pigeons are hilarious. It's like every day is halloween.
@33, ugh. that's awful. but maybe YOUR head pierced with a darthead would be only somewhat funny ;)
Crows are my friends. I think they're smarter than we are.
