Another J-League side have got themselves into a messy situation -- and it's all thanks to an army of dumping ducks.
Urawa Reds have had to resort to desperate measures to stop their training ground being used as a toilet by the local duck population.
The bird droppings are ruining the playing surface while the ducks are also leaving their feathers everywhere and biting chunks out of the grass.
So, in an attempt to drive off the web-footed menaces, Urawa have brought in falcons to scare them away.
Urawa's public relations chief Daisuke Maruyama said: "We have taken a number of measures to clean things up, including falcons and putting out cones on the pitch."
