Nearly 400 geese that had been living in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY were captured and euthanized as part of an ongoing effort to reduce the goose population in the New York City region.
Early in the morning on July 12th 2010, wildlife biologists descended on the park and netted the birds. The biologists-who work with the wildlife services division of The United States Department Of Agriculture-then packed the geese in crates and took them to a facility where they were gassed with lethel doses of carbon dioxide.
The prospect park geese were not the only ones removed in the last month. Their goal is to remove all geese within seven miles of the La Guardia and JFK airports, and soon Long Island.
Help us save the geese that will soon be extinct by signing this petition.
