    most likely they will try to catch it and relocate to bird park. Its gonna be a tough workout for those saikang warriors.

    Or get the crow shooters to shoot the fella instead of the bird.

    Since birds are creature of habits and relocation would not work and the chap probably would not shift house just to get his beauty sleep, the alternative way would either be to shoot the bird or shoot the letter writer.

    I think if you close one eye to the letter writer's "unusual request" to deal with the bird, he is actually ranting about how he pay fees enfored by law with no gaurantee or commitment of response time.

    By the way, he did not request for the koel to be shot as the TS and some have mentioned here.

    How many times I have read in the kopitiam of one person or another complain about increase in fares, fee hikes, clinic costs or road rates and yet there is no black & white on service levels or comitment for improvement?

    Why should the letter writer, frustrated after 6 weeks of waiting, be any different?

    Hmmm... Interesting, the TS registered on CS in Nov 2005 and the very first post is on this topic, plus a call for us to "spam" the Town Council...

    Maybe he/she has another motive for using the email template of "...shooting of birds..." in general (eg. crow culling) instead of calling out the koel specifically?

    Calling Moderators/Admins...

    Yes, let's not look too much in to it and take it as it is ok. No need for big time detective work and witch hunt.
