Geese not the prob­lem

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

JUST read­ing the ar­ti­cle July 22 (News-Mail) re: ag­gres­sive geese at Bund­aberg Botanic Gar­dens. Firstly my friend and I take her hus­band out there at least fort­nightly and have never wit­nessed the geese be­ing ag­gres­sive. They honk at you and come run­ning when they see you throw­ing out the food we pur­chase for them from the res­tau­rant 1928 at 50 cents a bag. There are no signs around stat­ing that you should not be feed­ing the wildlife and why then can you pur­chase the bags of food? I know they give a great amount of joy to chil­dren and es­pe­cially my friend’s hus­band who is con­fined to a wheel­chair. What I find more up­set­ting is the par­ents who do not con­trol their chil­dren and let them chase the ducks, geese and other birdlife. Also the amount of rub­bish that peo­ple throw around in the lake and sur­rounds is dis­gust­ing. Maybe the adults should teach their chil­dren how to pro­tect and ap­pre­ci­ate the spe­cial free en­vi­ron­ment we have here in Bund­aberg. DIANE STYLES
