I'd say some of those recently imported jihadis --you know the ones with limited exposure to terrorism-- are conducting tests.

Shoukd have just let the chinese restaurants catch them and cook them up. Ducks are not a problem but those Canada geese make the place look like an Obama tribute took place.
For sure. Try going to a state park with a lake. You'd better have a pair of disposable boots. The state of Ohio seriously needs to open hunting season statewide.

No kidding. There's goose crap in my neighborhood 365 days a year, the pond here has too many geese.

Ducks get Aflac.com mercials. the geese should be in a Hotsy or Landa pressure washer commercial.
Ducks are nice to have around. However, I always wondered why them damn geese never got sick after fertilizing.
I go to this pond a few times every year, and there's one goose thats been there 4 years with only one leg. I don't think he can get enough run to fly, because I've never seen him leave the ground. Plus, he never gets in water above his leg. I usually bring him some bread when I go, but that's the only damn one I've ever gave two sh*ts about.

Never thougjt about a one legged.goose. probably is a bitch just.to get around let alone take.off flights.
One or.two geese are not a problem. But if no foxes or snakes get the.eggs or.hatchlings then the number keeps building and in a few years there are so many it looks like a shit-storm hit.
They need herded out some way. Only problems that effect me is on fishing banks and golf courses, but I have run over one that cracked a vent under my bumper before.

He only jumps an inch or two at a time. I think he's given up trying to escape from peoples approach, because he looks like he gets fed pretty good. Probably the biggest goose I've ever seen.

I lived on a reservoir in Indiana, and my backyard ended at the water.

My yard would get eaten to the dirt in the winter from the geese. Green chit everywhere, and not a blade of grass anywhere.

My dog was to old to do anything, and took her several minutes to walk to were the geese were. The geese just looked and hissed at her.

Now when a puppy was added to my family, that crazy dog chased geese every waking second. Would swim halfway across the lake to chase them. The geese tried drowning the dog by climbing on the back, but the dog had skills.

That dog killed several hundred geese, and my neighbor was Police Chief.
He gave my dog treats every single time they crossed paths, and that was frequent. My dog would walk right in his house and eat his dogs food right out of the bowl.

When I moved to Columbus this dog met his match with a construction truck. Dogs can't swallow trucks, and he learned the hard way.

Not geese, but I remember being at a restaurant outside Cocoa Florida where birds lined the rails along the river. We were tossing hush puppies to the birds, some went over the rail and we kept hearing a THUMP THUMP. Looked over the rail and there was a one legged blue heron stomping around on the dock snagging treats.
