Plagued by a growing pest and rodent population, as well as a worsening infestation of unkempt teenagers, city parks officials have decided to kill two pests with one stone by allowing hunting in Acacia Park

Earlier this week, park officials began issuing hunting permits that will allow students to kill and eat as many pigeons, seagulls, rats and mice as they can find. "The kids are bored and need some- thing to do," said one park official. "This gives them a healthy outlet -- and a nutritious meal."
