    A deadly virus in Geneva kills the city's pigeons and doves off

    A deadly virus has killed hundreds of pigeons and doves around Geneva, Switzerland, resulting in them falling dead from the sky. Authorities have warned citizens not to touch the dead birds even though only pigeons and doves are susceptible to the virus. Apparently the virus will die out eventually and the pigeon population will rise again quickly. Nonetheless authorities have discouraged people from feeding pigeons in the city as the virus spreads faster when the birds flock together.
