Prospect Park’s Geese Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night


For the sake of “aviation safety,” the city brutally gassed 400 Canada geese in Prospect Park two weeks ago, horrifying Daily Intel. But some survived! According to the Times, four geese with special flight feathers escaped and were spotted sadly meandering along the shore of the lake just a day after the attacks. Since then, out-of-town geese in groups of six to sixteen have flown to Prospect Park to join their brethren. More than 28 geese have now been spotted standing in solidarity in Brooklyn, symbols of the geese population’s incorrigible will to survive! [City Room/NYT]
