Sheboygan fights seagull problems with mechanical birds

Sheboygon, Wisconsin has a bird problem...seems seagulls are flocking into the area and leaving their droppings which is not only messy but also a health concern.
The city's solution is setting up these mechanical birds that intermittently rotate and make 'squaking' sounds. The locals have mixed feelings over these contraptions that are not only annoying to listen to but also weighing in a cost of $1,000 a piece! Five total are scheduled to be installed, as of now two are up and running.
Not to worry....Sheboygon has a back-up plan which is to use dogs to scare away the seagulls. (not kidding)
