13 Oktober 2004

The first municipal pigeon loft in the city centre of Amsterdam was inaugurated today on the parking deck of the Bijenkorf store near the Dam.

The loft is designed by Stefan Gross.
City councillor Guido Frankfurther (D66) for central Amsterdam has also forbidden the cruel and pointless killing of pigeons in the city centre of Amsterdam. You can find their press announcement here - if you can read Dutch. The pigeon loft has been paid for by the city council and will be looked after by volunteers from the Landelijke Werkgroep Duivenoverlast.

More and more cities in Holland are in favour of this effective and animal-friendly method to reduce and prevent annoyance and damage caused by pigeons. Not only in Rotterdam but also in Zutphen and Soest for example, pigeon lofts are now becoming the preferred method.
