FEEDING THE HUNGRY: A woman feeds pigeons at the Wat Rakang Temple in Bangkok on Friday. A Thai district chief has clipped the wings of his town’s pigeon population by paying residents to trap the birds and organising a cook-off to build support for the cull. The campaign to go after hundreds of thousands of pigeons started earlier this week in the district of Lop Buri province — a region better known for its monkey menace. — AFP
