ADVOCATES TO ATTEND MAMARONECK MTG IN SUPPORT OF GEESE
of Westchester4Geese will join with other advocacy groups and
independent residents on March 11, 2013 at 7 PM in the Village of
Mamaroneck, to express their views on Mayor Rosenblum's decision to
contract with the USDA for a massive slaughter of their geese residents.
The mayor and Board of Trustees are also considering contracting with
Steve Garber, who has been quoted as saying, '"There are lots of ways to
get rid of the geese. You can throw rocks at them. You can hit them
with sticks. These are things that people don't like. But, we are
talking about geese." (NY Post)
And speaking of horses, they can deposit some seriously large poop, as large as a baseball - but because people can make a buck off 'em with carriage rides and the like, they 'look the other way' and don't complain; if people could make a buck off geese rides their poop would be ignored too.' The geese don't bother anyone: They walk around minding their business, eating grass and nurturing their babies. Best as I can see, unless a goose comes at you with a knife, she has a right to live.'
