what's good for the city of madison

is not good for the gander in this case. park officials recently decided to kill 80-100 geese in warner park in an effort to prevent a miracle on the hudson situation at the airport.

the "dispatching" of the resident geese is scheduled to happen this summer when the birds are molting and flightless. check out the official info here (pdf file).

opponents call the decision rash, claiming the parks department is mismanaging the issue. some say that the department needs to find creative solutions to deal with the threat of bird strikes.

killing animals is never a solution. whether feline or fowl, we believe in building a no kill community. if you agree, add your name to the petition or contact your local representatives to tell them how you feel.
