Animal welfare organisation make ‘urgent’ appeal about Harrow station

London Wildlife Protection have made an appeal to TfL after videos have emerged showing pigeons trapped at Harrow on the Hill Station.

The appeal states that there is a baby pigeon ‘currently trapped behind mesh’ that will ‘die a slow death’ unless someone can help it soon.

Posting via their Facebook page, London Wildlife Protection said: “Dear Pigeon Lovers!, We urgently need your help! Pigeons are constantly getting trapped in netting at Harrow on the Hill tube station and despite our volunteers’ pleas, the station management is not interested in helping them.

“This station is a problem in particular. The management is particularly unhelpful and uncooperative, ignoring our volunteers and members of the public requests and showing no compassion or respect for our wildlife.


“There is a baby pigeon currently trapped behind mesh, at least no longer hanging by his foot as in the video, but still trapped. He’s going to die a slow death unless someone helps him soon! The Fire Brigade won’t help here. The area is restricted so only station staff can help.

“Please join us in politely contacting London Underground to request their urgent action to rescue the trapped pigeon.

“Please contact them on 0343 222 1234 or fill out a form at tfl.gov.uk/help-and-contact/contact-us-about-tube-and-rail


“We need to put a lot of pressure to get them to do anything. Please spare some time ASAP today. Thank you for caring!”
