That makes me wonder whether the effort put into a campaign to make them cover 
it would give better results than the effort put into catching and euthanasing 

Perhaps the occasional old mattress left in their skip at night would encourage 
them to get one with a lid and lock it.

Hi Storm,
It would seem that the same does not apply to the young of Common Mynah. 
Directly behind our house is a bakery/cake shop, which does not (refuses?) to 
close their waste skip since new owners took over some 2 years ago. 
Consequently the local population of CMs has blown out. I counted over 50 of 
the vermin in my back yard this afternoon! A steady diet of bread, cakes and 
old meat pies does not seem to have affected the reproductive ability of the 
little swine and the health of the off- spring seems to be just great.
