This summer 400 Canada geese have already been killed in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and another 133 were killed in a park in New Jersey. The USDA is called in because Canada geese fall under the Migratory Birds Act, but instead of protecting the birds, they round them up and gas them to death.
As many as 2,000 geese or more may lose their lives this summer in these government-sanctioned culls under the guise of "public safety" or simply because they've declared the birds to be a "nuisance."
There are humane ways for people to co-exist with nature. Tell the USDA to stop killing Canada geese and use more humane - and effective - means of wildlife management.
