From the NY Times:
A gaggle of geese who were, at least temporarily, calling Randalls Island home were the target on Wednesday, the third day of a citywide roundup of geese that is expected to result in the destruction of some 2,000 birds.
And a great comment from the same page:
"Mayor Bloomberg gets to look like he’s doing SOMETHING when all he is doing is harming poor innocent geese. We have to learn to share this space with other species. But our Mayor can barely share New York City with other humans (unless they are developers, affluent or corporations) so I’m looking to the wrong source."
