According to CBS Sacramento, the city and local businesses have tried a variety of methods to make the crows go away, but have resigned themselves to cleaning up the birds’ leavings and waiting for them to go away.
It is legal for people to shoot the birds if they have a hunting license for them. The limit is 24 crows per day, which is interesting since it’s the first time we’ve ever heard of a hunting limit with roots in a nursery rhyme.
In the meantime, mall shoppers are kind of confused. “When she was trying to park, she asked me if she was in the spot,” one shopper told CBS Sacramento. “We couldn’t even tell because of how much white bird crap was on the [ground].”
