CBS New York:
Bird strikes affecting flights are on the rise in the Tri-State area.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, a new report suggests the problem keeps getting worse.
There were 175 bird strikes last year at LaGuardia Airport — the most since the FAA started tracking the incidents in 1990.
So the millions of dollars that taxpayers have spent to kill birds in NYC parks that the government deemed a threat to aircraft were actually thrown down the toilet? When is that waste of a program going to end as it has just been proven to be ineffective and unnecessary?
