If migrating species land on the Berkeley Pit for more than a few hours, they get cooked from the inside out. Now, miners use a rifle, drones, and lasers to scare the birds away.

"(The Berkeley Pit) is laden with heavy metals and dangerous chemicals that leach from the rock, including copper, arsenic, cadmium, zinc, and sulfuric acid."
"(It) is a tourist attraction, with an adjacent gift shop. An admission fee is charged to go out on the viewing platform. "
Montana must be *really* short of tourist attractions... 😬
@FediThing It amazed me so much like wtf
This is seriously a job people do wtf! Isn't there a better and more cheaper solution one would ask
@stux Well, it's cheaper than cleaning up the mess they created.
And by clean up I don't mean pumping lime into acidic water to neutralize it.
