An informal group of animal lovers have taken it upon themselves to help city-dwelling pigeons keep their feet clean. The group, known online as the “San Francisco Pigeons Stringfoot help” find flocks of pigeons and treat them for stringfoot, a condition that can deform the bird’s feet, while also working to break birds’ dependence on humans for food.
