Canadian Geese








On June 24, the Associated Press reported that the upscale, gated community of Lake Mohawk in Malvern, Ohio was planning to round up and decapitate resident Canada geese, based on a permit granted them by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The plan was ‘hatched’ because some neighborhood residents feel that the geese are a ‘nuisance.’

On Wednesday (6/30), The HSUS received confirmation that the round up had begun. Because the geese were molting and unable to fly away, they had no chance at escape. Ten goslings were captured and relocated, and nine adult geese were captured and beheaded.

The goslings are likely to have a difficult time surviving now that their parents have been killed. As gruesome as this plan sounds, it is even more troubling because it promises to be ineffective. The empty niche left after the geese are killed will likely soon be filled in by replacement geese, because lakes and well-groomed lawns are attractive habitats for wild geese.

And, we continue to construct more and more aesthetically pleasing suburban ponds at subdivisions and office complexes across this country, yet many continue to complain when water fowl are naturally attracted to them.

Many communities also now hire contractors to kill geese and destroy their eggs before they hatch.


Ask Ohio Governor Bob Taft to put a stop to the Ohio DNRs cruel and inhumane lethal Canada goose ‘control’ programs.  Ask him to stop the DNR from issuing permits, at least until all non-lethal alternatives have been used.

a sad story -- thanks for highlighting the issue

And people wonder why I like animals more than humans... This is just another example that saves me explaining my position. What about all the "human" nuisances who are out there raping and killing and torturing not only animals, but other people? Are they not a nusiance? Of course, I'm preaching to teh choir, I know... I just would like to see the "criminal rights activists" spend their time with more appropriate and worthwhile causes - like saving Canadian Geese who are doign nothing but floating and fishing.
