FBI’s Feathers Are Ruffled Over Pesky Intruders at Salt Lake City Office

The FBI in Salt Lake City is dealing with some pesky intruders.

A variety of birds are nesting in the FBI’s parking garage – a problem that has plagued the bureau since moving into their new International Center Facility in 2012, FOX 13 reports.

“Because of the vast amount of waste left by the birds it was determined to hire an expert to mitigate the bird problem in the most humane and legal matter,” the FBI states.

Trouble is, some of those birds may be the protected swallow.

“The Barn Swallow in particular is a very suburban urbanized bird and has learned to use shelters, and bridge overhangs and so forth,” said Bill Fenimore, of the Department of Natural Resources. “They are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, so you want to make sure you don’t go out and cavalierly knock nests down and things of that nature.”

The FBI installed netting in the garage, which keeps new birds out but traps the existing birds in, according to Fox 13.

The FBI said it is sensitive to the swallow’s protected status.

“The company working on this issue has explicit rules about the treatment of swallows and understands the strict regulations regarding the treatment of swallows,” according to the FBI.
