The Chicago Cubs have hired Bell Environmental Services to install its patented and revolutionary Bell Strip as bird control to stop a plague of ballpark pigeons from dumping on fans.
The secret according to company founder Phil Waldorf is something called a Bell Strip, which is a virtually invisible strip of plastic wiring that delivers a mild electrical shock to birds that land on it.
Waldorf insists the strip is humane because no birds are injured or killed and adds, It works! And theyre not cleaning up bird sþþþ for us in China, so well always have jobs.
Naturally, Waldorf hopes to bring the strip to other ballparks and jokes that its probably cheaper than having notorious pigeon-killing pitcher Randy Johnson do the dirty work; plus, he adds, Were more sanitary.
