Bangkok Bans Pigeons Feeding

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has issued an order banning the feeding of pigeons after finding that many living among humans are carrying dangerous bacteria.

Feeding pigeons is now illegal and punishable by up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 25,000 baht (800 dollars).

In the long term, pigeons are to be removed from urban areas and released into the wild.
