AN SS2 resident has complained that a bullet casing from a recent crow-shooting drive held by Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) had fallen on his head.
Nick F.L. does not like crows but he said the campaign, which involved the use of firearms, should not be held because it was a threat to public safety.
“I was walking near a commercial area when a bullet casing fell on my head. It is a dangerous activity and should not be carried out in an urban area.
“I would appreciate it if the authorities can solve this problem.”
He said MBPJ should come up with a better solution for the crow problem.
MBPJ said it would look into the issue, as it was the first complaint since the drive was initiated.
MBPJ public relations officer Zainun Zakaria said apart from shooting crows, the council’s team also devised traps to lure the birds.
“The traps are placed near rubbish bins and disposal centres in residential areas. We have also enlisted licensed professionals to carry firearms to conduct the shoot.”
