Button, the conflict between man and beast/bird continues.
When we were in Udaipur, we noticed that the hotel authorities had embedded plastic spikes on window ledges and elsewhere to keep pigeons, which exist in huge numbers, from squatting on these ledges and messing up the hotel premises with their droppings and feathers which fly out every time they scratch themselves.
So where do these pigeons squat with these plastic spikes all over the place?
I think these beasts/birds realise that, since they can’t fight man, they have to find ways to skirt around these obstacles and still squat where they wish to squat.
But what do they do?
What they do is squat on balcony banisters which are attached with every room and exposed pipes and avoid squatting on ledges.
Brilliant. Imagine that day when beasts and birds take on humans!
Not that they haven’t!. At SNGP, big cats have killed large numbers of humans because they have encroached into their territory. Remember my flashpost that spoke of huge spiders that had taken over the town of Memphis in Tennessee in the USA where residents got tired of squatting spiders from morning till night day after day and they still did not go away? It had become a nightmare for people living there.
Proves what unarmed non-humans can do if pushed against a wall.
