Crows? Call NEA.
Pigeons? Call AVA.
Mynahs? Both say not their problem.
Bloody 鸟 excuses.
We need a Ministry of Birds then. Then we can activate the 鸟人。
Birds continue to be a source of problem in areas of dense population in Singapore but as Channel NewsAsia finds out, it's been a challenge pinning down the relevant authorities in charge of the problem.
Crows come under the purview of the National Environment Agency (NEA) while the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) handles complaints of nuisance with pigeons.
But it gets a little complicated when it comes to mynahs.
When Channel NewsAsia visited a coffee shop at Bishan Street 11, mynahs were seen picking at leftovers.
Stall holders said the number of mynahs in their coffee shop has more than doubled in the past two years.
And when they approached the NEA and AVA, both agencies said they are not in charge of handling the birds.
Both the NEA and AVA confirmed this with Channel NewsAsia.
