We have pigeons in hachioji but they provide a service they are the ones cleaning the vomit from the last night's partiers and they are excited to do it maybe this guy we'll come back as one of them

So many intolerable people saying birds need killing. Sad. Misguided.

Many serial killers have a history of animal cruelty. Good they caught him in time.

Vicious man. causing so much suffering with this prolonged and painful death. He should lose his job and face trial.

His motive seems to be simply that he wanted to kill living things. I'm going to go ahead and guess that he'll face little to no actual punishment, but I hope the does get a decent judge who sees it for what it is and locks the man up for the maximum amount of time on top of fining him the maximum amount for a) animal cruelty, b) endangering the public, and more.

What does he have against pigeons and sparrows, for pity's sake. Tokyo has few enough bird species as it is.

Killing sparrows is unforgivable.

Facts are people who willing kill animals have mental issues. There was the kid who beheaded Jun Hase years ago who was known as the local kid who cut the heads off of cats. Why is it not acted on. Hope this guy gets a sentence and mental help.

Also, someone in my neighborhood cross bowed a cat to death. It will be his last action if I catch him.

Was he a science teacher? I guess he's just another creep with a grudge.

”His motive has not yet been established”

厭世, there’s a lot of it around.

So all the people who kill animals turn out to be serial killers of people?

Pigeons are flying rats full of disease. Having said that, native pigeons are very beautiful and I have 2 living on a tree in my garden. The foreign ones did big damage to my last apartment, costing me ¥35000. I hato them!

His motive has not yet been established.

Anyone in Tokyo living in an apartment with a veranda (aka pigeon toilet) would easily understand his motive.

Japan does need to do something about crows. They're taking over Japan.
