LaGuardia Geese Will Be Gassed, Shot, and Falconed in New Safety Program
A thorough AP report tells us that even the Audubon Society is on board ("It's clear that we can't really rule out killing Canada geese"). Trapping and relocating the birds has merely spread the menace, says the USDA, so now they kill them with carbon dioxide and oil existing goose eggs.
Airport personnel will be trained to blast geese with shotguns, and even to set falcons on them.
Though the famous Hudson River landing forced by bird strikes was the catalyst, errant geese are blamed for 77 "incidents" in the past 10 years.
