Hammersmith & Fulham Council isn't joking with their latest measure to improve the welfare of residents. After petitioning, residents of Perham Road are going to get relief from a constant barrage of pigeon poo through the deployment of hawks in the area.

It seems to be working, so far, and the council will continue hiring hawks to keep the peace for the foreseeable future. For those of you fearing for the lives of our favourite flying vermin, we have good news: they are generally only scared away by the birds of prey, not brutally devoured in front of hundreds of commuters.
