Wynn Las Vegas is now using raptors to scare other birds away from its property.

The hotel-casino says that the raptors do not attack the other birds but they stop birds like pigeons from bothering guests around the pool and making a mess.

Raptors have strong eyesight and are meat eaters. They also have hooked beaks and strong feet with sharp talons.
