NYC pulls trigger on mass execution of geese
According to the Associated Press:
Carol Bannerman, spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services, said Monday the department was asked to remove Canada geese from more than a dozen locations within seven miles of city airports.
In Brooklyn's Prospect Park, for example, around 400 geese were rounded up and killed using carbon dioxide – "because they are a risk to planes," the article continues. Last summer, the body count hit 1,200, which is what it's expected to reach this year.
