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!
