State Plays God. “170,000 geese — two-thirds of the population — will be killed.”
From the NY Times, excerpt:
It’s a doomsday plan for New York’s geese.
A nine-page report put together by a variety of national, state and city agencies shows that officials hope to reduce the number of Canada geese in New York to 85,000 from 250,000.
That means that roughly 170,000 geese — two-thirds of the population — will be killed.
The nearly 400 geese gassed to death this month after being rounded up in Prospect Park in Brooklyn — as well as an unknown number of other geese killed in New York City in recent weeks — were but a small part of the ambitious overall goal outlined in the document, which was obtained by City Room.
And it’s already started. Last week, 400 geese and their baby goslings were gassed.
