Feeding Pigeons in Kuwait, A Bad Habit That Must Be Stopped

ryuker / April 2, 2018

Kuwait used to be a nicer place back in the 60’s and 70’s, but it is no longer the same. The government is constantly trying to clean up people’s mess. One of the really bad habits I see across Kuwait on daily basis, and it never stops is people feeding pigeons their trash. I can’t believe that people believe that feeding pigeons their trash is a good deed, because without their trash, they think that all pigeons will die.

Pigeons mostly eat seeds, which is very light on their stomach. In Kuwait it is a total different story, you will see people feeding the pigeons fried chicken, oily rice with meat, pile of hummus, samosa, baked zucchini, hareesa, and whatever leftovers they can find in the fridge.

The problem is that when pigeons eat all that trash, they poop everywhere, because they are not used to eat food that is extremely oily. Their poop becomes acidic and it damages buildings and statues. The poor government send people on daily basis to cleanup the trash that people throw for the pigeons.

I want to personally thank Q8 Needs You for their constant efforts to make Kuwait a more beautiful place.
