Homeowners plagued by vultures

"...there's nothing the Florida homeowners can do about the gang of federally protected vultures that have overstayed their welcome."

What to do when you can't kill vermin? (Aside: Squirrels are also protected.)

This is nowadays normal, cf. the population explosion of Canada geese: 1. A migratory species when Canada and the US agreed to protect migratory birds (first 1917, latest 2005), these birds may not be killed except by licensed hunters under hunting regulations (time and place.) 2. Adapting to changing environments, many thousands of these birds now nest and summer in cities (from Philadelphia to Montreal) instead of summering near Hudson's Bay. 3. They are now a pest in public parks (e.g. New York, Boston, Ottawa, Toronto) because of their numbers, size and habits: but may not be killed. 4. Municipal administrators and politicians have no power to amend the international Migratory Birds Convention, even to protect public health and local amenities -- and national governments rarely take an interest in local or municipal conditions.
