More Crow Hazing Set For Watertown

Crows WWNY


More crow hazing is scheduled in the city of Watertown.

City officials say wildlife biologists with Loomacres Wildlife Management conducted several nights of crow hazing last week.

Two more nights of hazing are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, January 8 and 9.

Loomacres personnel plan to use remote-controlled aircraft, distress calls, low-yield pyrotechnicas called screamers and bangers, and handheld lasers.

Loomacres employees are also authorized to use limited lethal means if city officials say it's appropriate.

Officials say last week's hazing was successful, because biologists were able to disrupt the roosting patterns of the estimated 30,000 crows that call the city home.

City residents can provide the location, estimated size, and dates and times of sightings of the crow flock to Loomacres.
