SANDERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A central Georgia town plans to adorn its water tower with a buzzard carcass — and it’s not an attempt to attract tourists.

Rather, Sandersville hopes to scare off live buzzards that plague the area by relieving themselves on cellphone antennas.

The Telegraph reports that the town will use a buzzard carcass made with real wings and tail feathers to ward off the real birds. The carcass is sold by the Department of Agriculture for $125.

Officials said the carcass should be in place on the Sandersville skyline as soon as a worker from the phone company can mount it in place.
