Dynamited Crows – February 1939

It’s most likely illegal now, but in 1939 the city killed 6000 to 7000 crows with dynamite. They didn’t announce ahead of time when the dynamite would be exploded, because they felt that would result in possible accidents. “George Hale believes that at least two crows were killed for every cent actually spent for this first attempt.”
