As the human right to food continues to be violated in the U.S., birds falling to their death on swanky Sunset Boulevard were stuffed into jackets of the City of Angel’s poor and hungry or barbecued onsite Friday. Bird suicides have rocked the world as they have fallen in California, Arkansas, Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Missouri as well as other countries such as Sweden, Romania, New Zealand and Italy.

Some of the birds, such as those fallen in Italy, show signs of poisoning, a blue tinge on their beaks. Nevertheless, when excessively hungry, people eat anything they can, as witnessed in America – from the Gulf of Mexico coastal communities where people are eating recently poisoned fish – to Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles this Friday.

In Los Angeles, at least four in ten people live in poverty, 1.5 million actually live at the federal poverty level, and one out of 10 Angeleno families live in extreme poverty (below the federal poverty level).

“By the time I arrived at Sunset and Cahuenga, confusion was in full swing and the homelesses were busy picking up the dead birds and stuffing them into their dirty jacket pockets,” writes Los Angeles Associated Content reporter, Adam Luebke:

“The dead birds in this incident were exclusively pigeons, but for the homelesses, they were food. One man had already cleaned his fowl and was arguing with a hot dog vendor about frying it on his hot dog grill. The homeless held a bloody knife and shook the pigeon in the vendor’s face. The pigeon’s entrails hung at least a foot from the pigeon’s slashed belly. The guts swayed as the homeless man passionately pointed his knife at the hot dog grill…The poor pigeons that had landed in the street were mostly squashed. A bloody mess.”

    If the hot dog vendor abandoned his cart, then why didn’t the homeless mob just eat the hot dogs?

    The original author of this story ( wrote this satirically. A simple search would tell you that 371 birds did not fall from the sky onto Sunset Blvd. Another thing, do you think CNN would open its kitchens to homeless people so they could roast pigeons? Come on.
