Letter: Pigeons don't know any better, but people should

Garbage is everywhere, and you're mad at birds? This letter writer has some thoughts.
People throw garbage everywhere, but for some reason we're mad at pigeons in New Westminster? This writer has some thoughts.


Irena Kozakova wrote an honest letter which I totally agree with.

People cause much more waste than animals, who don't know any better.  Just look around wherever you go these days:  the ever-present cigarette butts are everywhere, discarded masks are thrown on the ground, single-use bus tickets are discarded.  

This is 100 per cent preventable, and as a side note, single-use masks are supposed to have the straps cut off before throwing in the garbage so animals won't get entangled in them.
