For the past couple of months, I've been plagued with pigeons on my balcony at my apartment. I looked on the internet to see if I was allowed to shoot them and keep them from coming back and setting up shop on my 3rd story apartment here in Casper.

Turns out my search criteria was not as descriptive as it could have been to find the right information that I needed to make an apt decision. But thanks to a few co-workers, it appears that you can, get rid of these pesky dirty birds with the use of a permit from the city of Casper. I will investigate to see if this is really true.

However, before I found this out. I had gone to some pretty extreme lengths to get some peace and quiet in the early morning. Early for me is around 9:00 AM. ( I know I'm a slacker.) I even went as far as getting a fake owl that was supposed to scare them away.

But to no avail, they returned to ruin my dreams of sugar plums and candy canes. So it looks like I'll be taking a trip down to city hall to get a permit.
