Will Larchmont's Geese Be Granted a Reprieve?
By Stefani Kim, Larchmont.Patch.com
On Monday, the
Village of Larchmont Board of Trustees met with the United States
Department of Agriculture (USDA) at a work session to discuss options
for controlling the Canada Goose population in Flint Park.
Kylie Blackman, founder of Westchester4Geese, has urged village officials to consider humane methods to control the goose population.
Patch spoke with Blackman at Columbus Park in Mamaroneck, where geese calmly milled about after a near-brush with death. Months earlier, Mamaroneck officials struck a clause from their USDA contract that would have sentenced the geese to death, with their meat to be donated to the homeless.
