Frederick hopes blasts will scare crows

By Associated Press

The city of Frederick is bringing in a bird gun to scare away crows that congregate along a retail strip of U.S. 40.

City spokeswoman Susan Harding said Thursday that a contractor will fire the loud, pyrotechnic device every night at sundown for a week, and then every other night the following week.

The effort is focused on the Golden Mile Marketplace, a shopping center anchored by a Toys R Us store.

The contractor is Animal, Bat & Bird Extractors, of Emmitsburg.

There's a heavy illegal population in this area. Maybe they'll think it's the po-po and run for the border.
