PHOTOS: Wires Installed Over Gazebos, Sprinklers In Trees, and Managers with Dogs Present at Flame Tree Barbecue as Disney Finally Fights Bird Problem at Popular Animal Kingdom Restaurant
Almost anyone who has dined at Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney’s Animal Kingdom has noticed an ibis walking around looking for food. It looks like the birds have finally gotten to be too much, as Disney has implemented new prevention efforts to keep the birds out of this seating area.
Wires have been installed around the covered seating areas.
The wires create nets that birds can’t fly through or land on.
The wires could have the added benefit of preventing children from climbing in dangerous areas.
We also saw a bird-hunting dog with a Disney manager.
Sprinklers have been installed in trees.
More wires had been placed across the small water features in this area.
Though guests and Cast Members alike should not feed animals, it is inevitable that birds in this area will get a hold of food. This means they will keep returning in larger numbers and create a potential danger for both themselves and guests.
What do you think of these bird prevention methods at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Let us know in the comments.
