Yeah Dusty the ones here are so over fed in parks and beaches that they've become tame, the way pigeons get at theme parks. They can be nasty though. Really don't know many people who'd be happy with them on their lawn because a border collie chased them off other people's lawns. Really doesn't solve the overpopulation problem. If they cull deer, why not the geese.
Wow for a 16 year old you sure are mighty full of yourself. Hope the real world teaches you a thing or two. You think the people here are mean, you have a lot to learn. "
My opinions make more sense! I'm not full of myself, it's just better to use more humane methods of control. I hope the world teaches YOU a thing or two, you need to work on your debating skills. I'm not saying you are mean, the people who told me that my dogs aren't dead and that I'm crabbing and whining, and just trying to get attention are mean!

Geese can be easily tamed to be pets. Canadian geese are not "nasty" by nature. They don't flock on residential lawns, they go where water is. Not a whole bunch of people have ponds in their yards. Border Collies will help solve the problem. They will chase them off of where people don't want them, and they will go somewhere else. It's cruel to "cull" deer too!
"In recognition of its successfully tested birth-control product for peacefully resolving conflicts between Canada geese and humans, Rancho Santa Fe-based Innolytics, LLC, maker of OvoControl, has won a national PETA award. OvoControl has been named the "Best Bird-Friendly Innovation" in PETA’s third annual Proggy Awards. Innolytics will receive a framed certificate and will be featured on PETA’s award-winning Web site PETA.org. PETA’s Proggy Awards ("Proggy" is for "progress") recognize animal-friendly achievements in commerce and culture."
If you people were not so trigger-happy, you could see the Canada goose problems for what they really are: a handful of people who do not want to watch where they walk so they can avoid stepping on goose droppings.
"wow. not trying to sound " mean" here isolde. but you seem awfully wound up. are you sure it wasnt you yourself that got into the dufflebag ? my lord ! take some zoloft or something....... "
??? You do sound mean. I'm not "wound up" I just can't understand why people don't care about these innocent lives. I didn't get into any damn bag, I don't smoke marijuana! What is your problem!?! Your comment can be pretty hurtful to people who actually have to take that medicine. I should know. My friend has to take it because she has a chemical imbalance in her brain. That comment is very insensitive.
All I'm doing is trying to make a point, and people keep putting me down for it. This I don't understand. All I'm trying to say is; Please help save the geese. There are more humane methods than murder! If you don't want to, then you don't have to. As for me, I'm trying to show you and others like you that it is cruel to kill them just because there are too many, and other things can be done.
Why are you encouraging her to poke fun at others? It's not very nice. If I could adopt some, I would. It wouldn't be fair to the poor things with all the dogs we have. They would be sacared. I honestly can't understand you people.
Making fun of someone because they care about the lives of other creatures is just mean! I can't put it any other way than that. It's just mean! If you don't care about innocent lives, that's your problem.

well for gods sake , WE GET THE POINT. WE GOT IT WAY BACK AT THE BEGINNING. out of 55 posts in this thread, 36 of them are yours !! how can we not have got the point ! we are allowed to disagree. you are getting so worked up and its not going to change anyones opinion about the friggen geese !
There is something else I would like to say here before I leave, probably for good. Just because I posted articles without siting the information (already appologized for this) a few times, you guys are now after me for everything. Because I made one mistake, I'm being ganged up on. Honestly, this is stupid. I can't see what I've done so wrong to you for you to bash me like this.
You know what, I'm not going to leave, because that is exactly what you want. For some reason, I believe, you guys just want me to get off this board and not come back. I'm guessing this all started from that ONE mistake I made.
