Considering that pigeons are often described as "rats with wings," I'm not surprised that the Pigeon d'Or project was created.

Funded by the Flemish Authorities, the Pigeon d'Or project centers around feeding these birds a special concoction that turns their poop into soap. Stats for Bird Poop Soap Trending: Older & Chilly
