I have little ability to comment on this story, brought to my attention by a commenter on my last post. Since I was away, I haven't been in the park, where I see the geese. The biggest shame and hurt is that these animals are simply dumped in a landfill. I know why the 'authorities' didn't announce the roundup -because they would've met much resistance. We've been living with resident geese in the metro area for 20 or 30 years. When I was a kid, they were only passing through. Is it right? I don't know. Our complicated human experience.


  1. The least they could have done was make available local geese for roasting and confit-ing. What a waste.

    Do I got to hell for saying that?

    I don't know, either.

  2. They worded the article so badly that it is unclear, but it sounds like they donated the breast meat before disposing of the carcasses.

  3. I didn't catch that they donated anything. I'll have to look again.

    I'll leave innocence to the innocent and extermination to progress.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
