Colne residents urged not to feed pigeons



Have your say

Residents feeding pigeons in Colne are being warned their actions could result in more of the Columbidae species flocking to the town centre.

Posters and leaflets are currently being designed by Pendle Council’s localities team, urging locals to stop giving food to the wild birds.

The aim is to prevent Colne’s pigeon population from growing any further, avoid an increase in droppings and stop thrown food from attracting rats.
