Cincinnati Bengals Fans Cheer at Their Own Risk

The National Football League's Cincinnati Bengals have a problem with pigeons at their stadium. So many pigeons have let loose on fans that the team got permission to shoot them. But a public outcry has caused stadium officials to give up their pigeon hunt. Instead, officials might scare the birds with strobe lights, netting, or noise makers. Until they find a new approach, fans are on their own.
