The alleged Park Slope Pigeon Killer has graduated to… cats?
An infuriated woman on the Brooklynian message boards insists that the person apparently behind the screenname “Pyrrhic Victory,” who wrote a post last week damning the pigeons who poop on his Park Slope stoop and vowing to slowly kill them off, is also responsible for the death of her cat, Scrumbles.

New developments in the case of the alleged Park Slope Pigeon Killer: he/she has been at it for years!
According to his/her latest post at the Brooklynian website, the anonymous aviary enemy has been “sprinkling poison among the bread crumbs” in Park Slope for years and no one has ever complained.
He/she also offers this explanation as to why there aren’t pigeon corpses all over JJ Byrne Park: “the poison I use is basically designed to kill the birds slowly so they actually die elsewhere.” Read More
To add a strange twist to the pigeon-killer saga, JJ Byrne park—where a Park Slope resident is allegedly sprinkling rat poison around in an attempt to control the avian population—is fenced off and under construction, as The Observer discovered when it visited earlier this afternoon.
The only area of the park open to the public is a large expanse of AstroTurf—a completely illogical place to tossed (poisoned) bread for birds, seeing as it would likely get trampled within minutes.
“I come here every day and I’ve never seen a dead bird … so if someone actually is doing this, I don’t know how effective it is,” said one Park Slope mom, Julie Karasik, who takes her children to JJ Byrne. Read More
Some crazed Park Slope resident has apparently taken it upon himself to cure the neighborhood of its “winged rodent” population.
This guy (and one of his neighbors) is apparently so inconvenienced by the pigeon poop near his residence that he is now resorting to lacing bird feeders and local parks with rat poison and anti-freeze. The anonymous resident posted this long, disturbing rant on the Brooklynian website imploring others to stop feeding these “nasty” pigeons that carry “vile diseases.”
And he’s not just staging these deadly feeders outside his own building. The poster is actually bold enough to say that he is sprinkling the poison around a local park where people “who seem hell bent on trying to erase their life’s sins” are feeding the pigeons bread.
But what about all of the other innocent animals (and children) who might inadvertently pick up the poison, you ask? Read More
