Birds are taking over Horn Rapids Landfill, posing a health risk to anyone in their reach. KEPR tells us how the city of Richland plans to take action to control the situation in a unique way.
Local home builders Tim Krinitsyn and Francisco Martinez say every time they walk into the Horn Rapids Landfill, they feel like they're entering a battlefield.
"We always just duck and cover when we get here," said Krinitsyn.
It's not the mountains of garbage or big machines at these men taking cover, its birds taking over the city's territory, feeding on the food in the landfill.
