poopNEW YORK, NY – New York has got a big stickin’ problem. The pigeons are all over the place, but New Yorkers notice their aftermath the most on stairs leading down to the subway. So the Queens’ subway stations are dishing out the cash to get rid of the poo.

They’re installing some major upgrades, like ultrasonic devices that’ll send out a vibration only the birds can hear, with the hopes of scaring them off.

They’re also going to install low-voltage wires that will zap the birds, and metal spikes on railings to prevent them from hanging around.

It all comes with a hefty price tag of a quarter of a million dollars. Now that’s some pricey poo.
