ADOW Meeting Announcement, March 11, 2013

There will be a meeting of the Mamaroneck Board of Trustees, which will held on:
 
7:30 p.m. in Village Hall at 169 Mt. Pleasant Ave, Mamaroneck NY 10543
 
Courtroom - Village Hall
 
The public will be allowed to speak on the proposed geese slaughter at this meeting
 
IN ADDITION:
 
A few thoughts re the PATCH article today (The reporter has added info re warning labels to the 'poor' who eat the geese flesh):
http://larchmont.patch.com/articles/mamaroneck-geese-on-death-row
 
- The reporter and I searched for poop (she wanted to take a photo); there was almost none to be found.  She then pointed to one - and I pointed out that it could be DOG poop as well, hard to tell.  Will MamK announce they're killing dogs?  Of course not.
 
- Mayor Rosenblum states we can ''put the geese in our own yards' if we wish - but we can't do it if he kills them.  
 
- 'If they are given the green light to go ahead, said USDA Spokesperson Tanya Espinosa,”Geese are placed alive in commercial turkey crates, and are taken to a poultry processor, where they are humanely euthanized and processed for human consumption following the guidelines set by New York State Agriculture and Markets, NYSDEC Bureau of Wildlife, and New York State Health Department.” - This must always be challenged; the gassing and suffocation of geese and their babies is never humane. These municipalities lie to the public to make themselves look good and make those who support this brutality feel better
 
- 'Rosenblum said that officers on patrol in the area often have to bring an extra pair of shoes to avoid tracking the goose waste into their homes and cars.'  Police in other venues have to deal with far, far worse than this, if its true.

 *Note:  Several current and former Mamk residents have mentioned the on-going sewer-system problem, which is being downplayed by the Mayor.  A few described the smell in the vicinity of the system as being unbearable.
