Flying rats

A random thought has, for no apparent reason, just popped back into my head (although between you and me, I trust my subconscious about as far as I could move it using telekinesis).

Has anyone charted the prosperity (wealth) of a town/city against the estimated population of pigeons in the area?

Presumably the town must be able to sustain the numbers of flying rats, typically through all the edible rubbish lying around. The higher the number of pigeons, the higher the number of people needed to generate the food source, the higher the number of people the higher the revenue they generate… see… it actually makes sense.

Sort of.

Well it does when you should’ve gone to bed about 2 hours ago.

I’m going to regret reading this in the morning, aren’t I. On second thoughts, don’t answer that.
