SANDERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A central Georgia town plans to adorn its water tower with a buzzard carcass -- and it's not an attempt to attract tourists.

Rather, Sandersville hopes to scare off live buzzards that plague the area by relieving themselves on cellphone antennas.

The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/XW8FiA) that the town will use a buzzard carcass made with real wings and tail feathers to ward off the real birds. The carcass is sold by the Department of Agriculture for $125.

Officials said the carcass should be in place on the Sandersville skyline as soon as a worker from the phone company can mount it in place.
