Canadian Town To Cull Over 250 Geese
The town of Nackawick in New Brunswick, Canada, has been granted a permit to kill more than two hundred and fifty geese that have taken over the town waterfront. No date has been set for this merciless culling, however, it can only take place whilst the geese are moulting and therefore unable to fly, which usually occurs for around three or four weeks in July.
The removal and destruction of the birds will be carried out by a licensed wildlife control officer and monitored by the wildlife enforcement branch of Environment Canada.
The geese will allegedly be destroyed humanely, however the method has not yet been revealed. A group called Save the Geese has created a Facebook page with opponents of the cull urging the town to consider alternatives such as relocating or scaring the birds away.
