Severed pigeon heads found on Sidakan public building grounds
SIDAKAN — Severed pigeon heads have been discovered on the premises of a government building in Sidakan, prompting an investigation by the Environmental Department.
The building houses the Sidakan Youth and Sports Center and the Sidakan Public Library.
The presence of asbestos in the building’s construction materials and the large number of aged trees in the compound’s garden, which attract pigeons, have been identified as potential factors contributing to the presence of pigeons in the area.
Jegr Qader, an official from the Sidakan Youth and Sports Center, confirmed to 964media the discovery of several pigeon heads in the center’s garden. “We are unsure who is responsible for this act, but we are conducting an investigation,” Qader said.
He recounted finding the severed heads of six pigeons in one part of the garden, with pigeon feathers scattered around the area.
Qader mentioned that the Youth and Sports Center has been operational in Sidakan for a year and a half without any security personnel on site.
The Public Library operates in the building until 2 p.m., after which the Youth and Sports Center begins its activities.
Following the incident, a team from the Environmental Department visited the site to determine the cause of the deaths and to identify the responsible party. “We are also reviewing surveillance footage from cameras installed in the building to assist in our investigation,” Qader added.
The official reiterated the importance of identifying and holding accountable the individuals responsible for the incident, stating, “We will file a legal complaint against the perpetrators of this act.”
