100 GEESE ARE DEAD DUCKS

Nearly 100 Canada geese were killed yesterday, the first day of an effort to exterminate waterfowl that smash into planes.
Agents from the US Department of Agriculture hit four city parks and will continue rounding up the geese this week, said Allen Gosser the department's assistant state director.
The geese, which are flightless during the June and July molting season, are "herded into a corralled area and are picked up in wooden crates," he said. They are gassed with carbon dioxide.
The $100,000 campaign will eliminate about 2,000 geese that could be a hazard to aircraft.
