No worry about geese at College Point

From the Queens Courier:

Despite calls to abandon the project, the city’s Department of Sanitation is continuing plans to construct a Marine Transfer, according to a recent statement by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

According to a statement from the Mayor’s office, “Canada geese, which are herbivores, are not known to gather at waste transfer stations.” Bloomberg also cited findings by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA.)

No, but gulls do, brainiac. And they also get sucked into plane engines.
