About 800 Canada geese have been trapped and gassed around New York City's two airports in an effort to reduce the kinds of bird strikes that led to the ditching of a jetliner in the Hudson River last winter.
Birds have been culled from 15 sites within five miles of LaGuardia and Kennedy airports.
U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Carol Bannerman says agency biologists and other specialists are trapping and euthanizing the birds. Officials plan to kill 2,000 geese within weeks.
So Mayor Bloomberg, the guy with the world's most innovative ideas, doesn't have a problem with killing living things. He could have called GeesePeace whose strategies are non-lethal. But no... let's just start the bird massacre.
