Wildlife experts say the number of Canada Geese at Collins Lake is now more than twice the number it should be.
So to fix the problem, about 150 birds will be trapped with nets, gassed with carbon dioxide, and then buried by late June.
The cost of this task will be $300,000 and the reason for this, according to the Times Union, is to restore the quality of the lake.
Collins Lake was closed last summer because of the high levels of E-coli Bacteria.
Many critics say they're unhappy with this decision, however village officials say it's the best option for now.
Scotia's mayor says next year the city will consider non-lethal means in addressing the ongoing problem.
