On the mean streets of Brooklyn Heights only one law governs man and beast — Darwin’s. From the BHB Inbox comes this dispatch from “CF”:
This bird has been in front of 90 Pierrepont Street for 3 days now, and has what looks to be a painfully injured leg. I feel awful seeing him every day, and have tried calling Animal Control, the Department of Environmental Conservation, and 311. None of the organizations I’ve been in contact with will help pigeons or crows.
I know pigeons aren’t the most welcome neighborhood inhabitants, but I don’t think this bird should have to suffer like this. If anyone knows who to contact about injured pigeons, or is an animal expert who could help this little guy, I’d greatly appreciate any assistance!
While some folks here at the BHB Metroplex lean more Pepin than Stroud, we think that our little buddy here might get more help and attention if he has a cute name. Give us your naming suggestions below, as well as any hints on what “CF” can do to help the birdie live to see the season premiere of Anthony “I’ll Eat Anything” Bourdain’s No Reservations next week.
