Welcome to Terre Haute, Crow-opolis
Terre Haute has a crow problem. Check this out:
Two winters ago, Union Hospital spent more than $100,000 to clean up after crows, an effort that included power-washing the parking lots. Last year, a crew shoveled 4,000 pounds of crow droppings from the roof of a building used by the Clabber Girl baking powder company. Trees have been chopped down. Recorded crow-distress calls have been played. Debates have raged between those who love all God’s creatures and those who say the only good crow is a crow that has ceased to be.
About 100,000 crows will descend upon Terre Haute this crow season. My solution? Rat shot. Murder the murder. Easy peasy.
