Dear Mr. Gatta

I am writing to you today to urge you to use non lethal methods that have been presented to you by Friends of Animals in dealing with the geese that are populating the pond in your area.

Spending tax funds to kill the geese is not a viable solution to solving your problem.

You can easily deal with this issue by simply planting some shrubs and trees, invest some of those tax funds that you are willing to spend on killing wild geese, in a machine that is specifically designed to collect goose droppings.

There is no need to result to the slaughter of innocent wild birds when there are sensible, safe and less costly methods available.

I sincerely hope that you choose the non lethal plan. You will come out looking much better for this choice in the long run and innocent birds will be able to live their lives free of harassment and slaughter.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

Sincerely yours,

Tamara Hayes

I hope the geese can be saved why do they always want to exterminate animals they see as an inconvenience??

We have covered half the earth in concrete and asphalt, and the other half with croplands and lawns that we don't want the animals to touch- where the heck are the poor things to go?

How much more cruelty will humans inflict upon animals who cannot defend themselves. These so called humans should have their heads bashed in with a hammer, not the geese. Noted and signed.

Who could possible bash a goose in the head? Whoever came up with this plan needs their head bashed.
