The city installed the non-lethal "bird shock flex-track system" after a flock of about 60 vultures caused $1,000 worth of damage to the $150,000 roof of DeLand City Hall, the Daytona Beach News Journal reported Thursday.
City Manager Michael Pleus said it was important to keep the vultures from further damaging the roof because they could cause leaks. He said officials decided on the electric shock system after hearing of how it has been successfully used elsewhere in the state.
