New York State to Kill thousands of Geese
The state plans to eliminate 170,000 Canadian geese.
That means two-thirds of the current population could be exterminated.
The aggressive plan is a reaction to the crash of US Airways Flight 1549 last year.
Earlier this month, 400 geese in Prospect Park were euthanized and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been removing the birds from several locations near JFK and LaGuardia Airports.
State Senator Eric Adams lead a vigil for the departed geese last Saturday. Adams said there are more humane ways to deal with the birds. Please join on Facebook and try to stop this?
