According to media reports, a neighborhood called Cameron Village, which is located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, recently hired a contractor to round up and kill Canada geese who call the area home. The roundup was held in late June, when the birds were molting and thus flightless. The terror that these sensitive beings would have experienced is horrific, and their babies are left entirely vulnerable when doting parents are hauled away. Such initiatives are extraordinarily inhumane and wholly ineffective, as more birds will simply move in to use the available resources as long as the area remains attractive and accessible. PETA apprised FirstService Residential, the community’s management company, of the futility and cruelty of this approach but received no assurances that lethal methods would be sworn off moving forward. Your help is needed!

Please feel free to use our sample letter, but remember that using your own words is always more effective.....

I was horrified to learn that Cameron Village hired a contractor to round up and kill Canada geese. Such initiatives are extremely inhumane and ineffective, as more birds will move in to use available resources as long as the area remains attractive and accessible. Removal can also backfire because the resultant spike in the food supply prompts accelerated breeding among survivors and inevitable newcomers, with populations then increasing. Please commit to humane and effective alternatives.

I understand why people get upset about this but the methods that PETA suggests to control geese populations take time and money to implement, and are not practical in many situations. Goose poop may not pose a hazard to people but it is GROSS when it covers an area that people want to use. There are 2 sides to every story. I live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and know the problem well.
