BONEYARD ARTS FESTIVAL

Top of the Morning, April 7, 2018

On March 16, signs were posted on a several trees just to the west of the PNC Bank building in downtown Champaign.

"WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE BIRD SHOCK SYSTEM"

It didn't take long for passersby to notice and take their curiousity — and, in some cases, concern — to social media.

As a result, the signs were removed this week. Soon, the wiring in the trees will come down, too.
