PETALING JAYA: The Klang Municipal Council (MPK) has come under heavy criticism for organising a crow-shooting event in Klang on Sunday.

A poster of the event put up by MPK has been circulating on the Internet, with many bashing the exercise which they deem as cruel.

The event page found on the MPK website.

Facebook user Dxc Kil questioned the event saying, "What purpose is this event for? Are the crows starting to affect our health/safety/environment? What's the rationale? Or is this just for fun?"

According to the poster, the event will take place from 6am to 7pm and the congregation point will be in front of the Pandamaran Hockey Stadium.

Comments also said there were many crows there as the place was not clean.

"We should stop littering and dumping food which crows eat. This causes more crows to breed, Shooting them is not a solution," said Warren Wu.

When contacted, an MPK officer said the exercise was initiated due to public complaints that there were too many crows around.

The MPK officer also said that a press conference would be held at the hockey stadium at 9am Sunday to explain the exercise to the media.
