Burbank businessman arrested over feeding of birds at airport

Arrested for feeding pigeons? are we getting a little touchy?

Next, we should all get special permits to shoot down any birds flying within 3 miles of an airport.

This is hardly comparable to pointing lasers at airplane cockpits.

My son fly s out of there, remove the risk.......

Feed them bread with bicarbonate of soda rubbed in. Problem solved.
