Dear all, For about 2 months now there has been a small hen living on a roundabout close to where we live. The roundabout is landscaped so there are about 8 or 10 ficus trees, cypress trees and there were very dense bushes too but they were all bulldozed down a few days ago. I don't know how she has survived for that long, she doesn't ever seem to venture to cross the road (thank God because the traffic there is very intense). I am guessing she sleeps in one of the trees. What's worse, someone dumped a rooster there too some weeks ago, I guess with the idea of having babies... Well, a friend from a stray animal sanctuary and I have been trying to trap them; last weekend we got the rooster - he went straight into the cat trap after yummies. The girl, however, is too smart, and many people have tried to get her. She flew up into a tree yesterday when she saw us approaching, and we stayed across the road for an hour and she never got down again. Then we ran out of time and patience and left. This morning I was there from before the dawn, and I just didn't see her anywhere, and at 7 am I had to go back home to take care of my own babies and get ready to go to work. We tried a week before to go there at 11 pm (when the dense bushes were still there) but we were afraid to scare her out into the traffic, confused after being woken up at night, so we left. What would you do, how would you approach this situation (apart from cordoning off the whole roundabout???) Someone suggested drugging her with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anisette - is that even safe? I would not want to risk for sure, but I was told that's how they used to catch pigeons in this country. Any thoughts would be appreciated... The roundabout is apparently going to be revamped and I don't know where she's going to stay. And being amidst all that crazy traffic, my heart sinks just thinking about it.
