238 geese, goslings killed in today's euthanasia effort in Mill Creek

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 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.
