From the NY Post:
Goose hunters are casting a wider net this summer for the pesky, plane-threatening flyers.
This year’s Canada goose cull will expand to a seven mile radius around Kennedy and LaGuardia airports, up from last year’s five-mile radius.
Over the next month, city and federal workers will remove geese from Fort Totten Park, Flushing Meadows Park, and other "targeted" areas, officials said.
Last year, the US Department of Agriculture removed more than 1,200 Canada geese from 17 sites, sending them to goose gas chambers.
City officials have also removed geese and prevented goose eggs from hatching at Rikers Island, and installed don’t-feed-the-birds signs in 40 parks.
Okay, once again, the birds that tend to take down airplanes are migratory geese. The ones we see in our parks don't migrate. They hardly ever even fly. They have no reason to. They are opportunistic and everything they want to do is happening on the ground. Therefore, goose killing is unnecessary and a waste of taxpayer money.
