Return of Buzzards Causing Problems in Southeastern Nebraska

Posted: Updated:

The buzzards are heading back to the state and causing problems for many individuals, including those at Windstream Communications in Beatrice.

The federally protected birds are more often known as turkey vultures and it is their waste that is causing problems according to John Dageford of Windstream Communications. He went to the City Council to address the issue.

Last fall Dageford approached the council about amending the city code so someone could legally use a high-powered pellet gun to kill some of the birds that roost on a tower near the Windstream office. He hopes that the rest of the birds will flee after killing just a few.

The council discussed the idea again at a work session on Monday, but have not decided on the matter yet. Police Chief Bruce Lang says the birds are a problem at several locations, which could raise more requests for gunfire.
