Parks and paths too full of geese

Tri-City Herald (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Now that the midterms are over, it’s time to move onto more im­por­tant things. Re­cently I was rid­ing my bike along the river on the Franklin County side. Part of the ride was through Wade Park (Road 40 - Road 52).

It was a beau­ti­ful day, and I no­ticed the mass num­bers of geese feed­ing in the grass ar­eas. Now, I like birds and wildlife as much as the next guy, but the prob­lem with a lot of geese is a lot of fe­ces. It tends to make the park much less de­sir­able for use, which goes against the idea of an out­door re­cre­ation area.

In this day and age, one would think that some­one would come up with a prod­uct that is both safe and biodegrad­able that could be ap­plied to the grass that geese would find dis­taste­ful and de­ter them from feed­ing there.

Please smart per­son, come to the res­cue.

Tony Schou­viller, Pasco
