The large number of pigeons congregating on Dock Street has some residents concerned.


The Town of Shelburne will look into changing its bylaws after receiving complaints about people feeding large numbers of pigeons on Dock Street and other areas of the town.

While noting that pigeons can cause pest problems in a community, CAO Rhonda Henneberry cautioned that the town would have to be prepared to enforce any new regulations.

Council is expected to bring the issue to its next Committee of the Whole meeting in June.

“We need to do some research on this,” said Councillor Bob Sinden.
