Nevada Pigeon Control is the only humane society in the world dedicated to the protection and control of feral pigeons. We built a pigeon control sanctuary to house birds involved in conflicts with humans. We ran into problems with the City of North Las Vegas where the sanctuary was located. They were threatening to close the sanctuary, even though the law clearly stated that we could have it.
We reached out to PETA for help. I spoke to Jodi Minion at headquarters. She always took my calls before. But after our initial conversation, she never answered my calls again. After my emails, she never returned them.
As a result, we lost a critical battle with the city. We now have to euthanize all the birds we capture within 72 hours.
This was a critical issue we reached out to PETA to help us with. They completely turned their backs on us. Their negligence affected the disposition of MILLIONS of birds in Las Vegas.
We weren't asking for money... We were just asking for some people to come out and support us... to make a few phone calls... write a letter.
Was that too much to ask?
Below is a copy of the letter I sent to Jodi Minion and David Salisbury:
