These geese weren't "euthanized", euthanize means mercy killing and the only mercy here was for residents who just couldn't find a way to share the park with wildlife. It is quite possible to use non-lethal methods to restrict geese to certain areas of a park. It's been done before countless times very successfully. But USDA Wildlife Services doesn't tell people about that part because they make more money faster by rounding up these geese - including young goslings - and killing them. If you're disgusted by this, join the +90,000 other people who've signed the change.org petition against USDA WS. Google "stop slaughtering millions of wildlife" and "Robert Merrick" and it should come up. Sorry can't post a full link to it here.
