This is a very bad idea. Pigeon and dove releases are very cruel and frequently result in death. Read what this dove and pigeon rescue has to say: http://www.pigeonrescue.org/faqs-2/why-dov…,
It is inaccurate and quite frankly irresponsible to encourage people to kill rats. Rats are sentient, they feel, they want to live as much as e do. They have as much right to be here as we do, after all we are in their habitat. They aren't numbers to be 'managed'.
Rats are commonly thought to be dirty, but are actually fastidiously clean animals. You wouldn't encourage people to put a squirrel in a trap right?
Lethal methods of 'managing' rodents simply don't work, and never have. It won't cause the population to go down, more rats will just move in.
Did you know rats like to be tickled and will giggle? It is our fault their population is like this in the first place, we don't get to make them suffer for it.
Humane rodent control:
Humane meat can never exist, because it is basically humane violence and humane murder. We don't need to take animals' lives, so why would we? Why do we say dog meat is not humane but pig meat is? You don't go into the slaughter business because you love animals. That isn't love. If you respect them, you don't kill them because you want to taste their dead bodies. You don't take their babies away. You don't punch numbers into their ears, as if they are just inventory, just an object.
Also, kangaroos are wild animals, not pets.
