Canadian Geese can certainly be a problem in large numbers, but so can people. Shall we euthanize large populations of our elderly, homeless or unemployed people in crowded areas in our cities? No certainly not. Although not human, Canadian Geese are very intelligent and have personalities and intelligence comparable to that of a small child. There are in fact many humane methods of controlling Canadian Geese and it's being done across the country. The city has not done it's homework. Please go to the following webpage for information regarding humane control of Canadian Geese:

oh they are just mad cuz the geese poop on their pretty golf course that surrounds perch lake, you know that big adult playground where the board members usually are. think of the beautiful park and campground we could have had there, beach, fishing, trails, oh i dream too much. anyway just wipe the stuff off your golf ball and leave the geese alone, it's their home too.

Quit destroying the wetlands surrounding the sparta area, we used to have places to hunt these geese and they were not a problem then. now they have taken out the wetland areas for development, the places where geese used to live and be controlled by hunters. if someone around here could learn to think ahead, we wouldn't run into so many problems later.
