Government’s Goose Genocide Just Getting Started


Yesterday we reported the inspiring reappearance of 28 geese in Prospect Park, after the state government had gassed four-hundred Canada geese to death because they’ve been attacking airplanes and costing airlines money. Well, the state is retaliating, and then some!

What?! That is goose genocide! Hopefully a few of these geese have their special flight feathers strapped on again and survive, without holding it against humans for systematically gassing and killing their families, so that we can someday improve the now out-of-control goose-human relations. We’re sorry, Sticky!
