French Theme Park Sends Rooks Out On Litter Patrol

PARIS – A French theme park has trained six rooks to pick up cigarette butts and other rubbish dropped by visitors in return for food.

Christophe Gaborit, the head of falconry at the Puy de Fou park in western France, hand-reared the six rooks and trained them to collect garbage by offering a treat for each piece of rubbish collected.

“Rooks are unfairly maligned, classed as a nuisance, but these birds will perform an eco-friendly deed and restore their image,” Gaborit was quoted as saying on the theme park’s in-house blog.
