Wild Pigeons Unusually Plentiful at Stroudsburg

Wild pigeons have been unusually plentiful with us this spring. Large numbers have been shot and caught, and, they have been offered to our citizens at $1 per dozen. A flock settled down in one of our town gardens last Friday, but they left before giving our hunters a chance at them. Our typographical force went out last Saturday to "play havoc and let loose the dogs of war" among them and returned after a hard days work with 0-0-0. Bully.

April 15, 1875. [Wild pigeons unusually plentiful.] Stroudsburg Jeffersonian 32(46): 2.
