BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) _ The buzzards are back in Beatrice.

The federally protected migrating birds are more accurately known as turkey vultures. And their waste is a problem that John Dageford of Windstream Communications wants the City Council to address.

Last fall Dageford approached the council about amending the city code so someone could legally use a high-powered pellet gun to kill some of the birds that roost on a tower near the Windstream office. The hope is the other birds will flee the danger.

The council again discussed the idea at a Monday work session but took no action. Police Chief Bruce Lang says the birds are a problem at several locations, which could raise more requests for gunfire.
