“It’s a health problem we’ve had to deal with, and at the cost of the city, so if we have a cheap solution, there’s no reason to try it, right?” Cities elsewhere in the United States have tried similar techniques, including in Rochester, New York, which attempted to displace up to 30,000 of the birds in 2018."

Starting post school age is too late. And don’t forget non whites, disabled, and gingers.
