Mayor Bloomberg has weighed in on the city's shocking plan to murder 170,000 Canada geese: "Look, the Department of Agriculture has to deal with the fact that all these geese are a danger to people flying," he told The Wall Street Journal. “People are not going to stop flying and we have to make a decision. It’s geese or human beings." And which faction does the mayor support in this inter-species warfare? "I can tell you where I come out on that. I don’t think you need a quote from me.”
