Officials in West Palm Beach, Florida, have reportedly begun using the viral children’s song “Baby Shark” to deter homeless people from a city-owned facility.
“Baby Shark” is one of a number of songs that the city has begun using to steer the homeless population from the pavilion, which is typically rented out for events. The facility also has had a significant issue with homeless people using the location as refuge at night.
“People are paying a lot of money to use the facility,” West Palm Beach Parks and Recreation Director Leah Rockwell stated. “Thousands of dollars. We want to make sure people paying this money had a facility that was clean and open and continue to use it in the future.”
