OrangeTV: ‘Tis True About Birds & Hagadonia

OrangeTV: It’s true though about Hagadone and the bird thing - Not a lot of people think about the fact that there aren’t any birds making thier homes in the eaves and nooks and crannies of Hagadone-owned facilities, where you’d think they would normally love making homes. Well, when I worked graveyard at the resort for a while, I witnessed many times in the middle of the night the “bird men” spraying some kind of bird poison all over the place, especially under and around the corporate office and then gathering and hauling away the poor critters after they drop dead. They do this in the wee hours very quietly to keep the “tree huggers” from getting involved. I’m sure any goose trying to breech the golf course gets the same treatment. God forbid a high-paying resort guest should have to look at bird poop.

DFO: As a long-time Hagadonologist, it didn’t take too much of a guess to nail that one. The Duane simply won’t have one of God’s creatures crapping on the bent grass of his golf course.
