Park area shut over pi­geon slaugh­ter

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A park in the city’s down­town area has shut down its pi­geon­feed­ing area amid com­plaints from vis­i­tors that it was in a state of dis­re­pair and the man run­ning it was se­cretly killing the birds and sell­ing them as food. Ac­cord­ing to the com­plaints, the man was of­fer­ing to sell the pi­geons to park users for prices rang­ing up to 100 yuan ($15) for a fully de­vel­oped bird. Re­port­edly, the ser­vice was pop­u­lar among older park users, who said the birds were fresher and more nu­tri­tious than those sold in wet mar­kets.
