Too Many Geese? Feed Them To The Homeless

The saying goes “kill two birds with one stone.” How about killing a ton of birds, with no stones, and feeding a bunch of homeless people in the process? That’s what a town in Maryland plans on doing. Why? Geese overpopulation at two local parks.Over the last few years, the Montgomery Parks Department has been trying to deal with population problem without killing any of the birdies. Being unsuccessful means officials have to get creative.

That’s why the town plans on rounding up 100-150 geese from Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Park in Silver Spring and Rock Creek Regional Park near Gaithersburg. Once killed and processed, they’ll donate the meat to the Maryland Food Bank.

So why all the murder? In short, poop. Geese can drop a pound of poop per day. EACH. And it’s not just a mess, the bird brown can hold a ton of bacteria ruining the water and sports fields.

And it’s not because they want to kill them. The Parks Department has exhausted all of the non-lethal methods and here we are. Sure, the homeless people don’t mind though. Christmas dinner comes early!
