Locals in Ware, Hertfordshire, are worried that the growing number of birds is driving away shoppers and tourists from the town.

But Tory councillor Jake Shropshire told a town meeting that the pesky pigeons could be kept to a low number by adding a special contraceptive to bird feed, the Daily Star reported.

Others on the planning committee weren’t so impressed with Shropshire’s idea and instead said that warning people than feeding the birds would be a better course of action.
