City announces plans to get rid of pesky pigeons by getting them drunk


Officials in the north-eastern city of Sumy are considering the strange move after growing tired of the increasing number of pigeons running amok in the area.

According to local news reports, they have been particularly irked by the large amount of bird droppings falling on a statue of famous Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko. 
The problem has been magnified by Sumy's upcoming prestigious City Day celebrations, which take place across the country to remember the day each city across Ukraine was founded.

Eager for the city to look its best, desperate official Alexei Movchan believes he has found the perfect solution to Sumy's pigeon problem.

'Let’s give them wine-soaked bread and then deport them somewhere where they’ll wake up the next day,' announced Movchan, who heads the city branch of the ruling Party of Regions.
Movchan denied the controversial move would infringe animal rights groups, insisting it is a tried and tested custom practised regularly by an Orthodox Christian monastery in west Ukraine.

Sumy, founded in 1652, will celebrate its City Day on September 2.
