So here is an idea: Instead of goose birth control or gassing the birds, how about people STOP FEEDING THEM.

Geese are migratory animals that should move from one place to another. One of the major reasons they stay and reproduce like rabbits is because our society cannot get the idea into their heads that they are WILD animals. They don't need the leftover bread from your pantry.

Stop making the geese provide some hallmark moment with you and your children/grandchildren. The kids only get bit, and the geese continue their takeover.

Maybe we should consider a fine if you are caught feeding the geese. Do we really need the extra patrol and extra fines? No, but we don't need a million geese taking over our town either.
