Pigeon Poaching

So I was walking Trevor this morning, and I see a sign on 9th Ave.  It reads (paraphrasing)... "Illegal Netting of Pigeons was spotted in this area on 12 Feb.  If you see illegal behavior, please inform the NYPD.   Pigeon Poaching Is Illegal!"
And I thought, Illegal?
That's a bit harsh.  I mean you should really give it a quick par-boil to seal in that disgusting squab taste, then run it under the broiler for 10 minutes.  But illegal?   What will government over-regulate next?  Damn Democrats.

It was probably employees from Popeye's

"Love that pigeon from Popeye's!"

I must be working too hard. I had to read it twice to get the cooking reference. And it was very droll once I did!
Regardless of the double entendre on "poaching", did they really mean pigeon KILLING? They are dirty little rodents.
