Whitestone’s got an unusual problem. One of its houses has been hosting dead geese in its backyard since last Friday.
A Whitestone resident, who has been living in the area for 25 years, went into her backyard that morning and saw roughly 16 to 20 dead geese hanging on a clothesline in the backyard of a house on 150th Street and 15th Drive.
She said the yard behind the house tends to be a mess, with garbage cans that the owners collect as well as an irrigation system. She said she did not want to get the owners in trouble but was worried about the possible threat of disease in the neighborhood.
But according to another resident in the area, who has been living there for 50 years, this isn’t the first time the owners have hung up animals since they moved to the neighborhood in April 2011.
“I did see it last winter, but not as much,” she said. “Now it’s just clothesline-full.”
The occupants of the house could not be reached to explain the mysterious bird appearance.
