Meet The Man Who Shoots At Birds All Day To Keep Them

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.

@catswhocode But wahaaat

this is seriuously a job people do :flan_laugh:

whattt daaa fackkk!

All that cash. Isn't there just a much simpler and cheaper solutions lol

@stux @catswhocode a
looks like an american solution to a simple problem 😁 (sorry Americans, love you)
aren't there sound emitting devices that cause birds to not stick around that could be used instead
that and/or... y'know... scarecrows...

@paul I know what you mean, solve everything with guns (I don't own any, just a sword) @stux

@stux I'm sure there is, like have a preventative fence or something? idk

@catswhocode Perhapd, or clean the water to start with :blobcatgiggle:

Also a huge ass mega net would do i guess! We have them also on ponds here against the birds eating the fish but rather sm0ller

Can't we deter birds with ultrasonic or magnetic fields? hmmmm

@stux

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkeley

"(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 :blobcatgiggle:

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.
