Really? Just imagine a disgruntled homeowner skulking through the dewey grass of a residential retention pond to kill a batch of unborn goose babies. I truly hope this does not actually happen. Anyway, good luck because the goose parents will peck you, and rightly so.
Why do we need to get rid of geese in the city? Wildlife in an urban environment is a treasure to be enjoyed. Plus they only pass through a couple times a year. I live near a retention pond and one of my favourite activities this past month has been to go feed and visit the three growing goose families living at the pond. Baby geese are the CUTEST THINGS EVER! Sure my shoes are a bit mucky after. I wipe them on the sidewalk. Big deal.
Lastly, we all need to remember the geese are not in fact encroaching on our territory-- we are in theirs. The sense of entitlement some people have about what 'belongs' in their urban environments baffles me. I bet you the geese aren't particularly pleased at all these buildings and cars we've put in their nesting grounds, either.
In a time when suffering, dying, oil-soaked birds and other creatures are regulars on the news, I take huge comfort and joy in the health and happiness of our local feathered friends.
