Protesters Cry Foul Over Inwood Geese Round-up
NBC TV NEWS
By Chris Glorioso
Protesters ramped up complaints about geese extermination outside Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Upper East Side home after one woman stumbled upon geese exterminators rounding up the animals in Inwood Hill Park.
Suzanne Soehner was walking her dog inside the park and says she stumbled upon federal wildlife officers preparing to kill dozens of Canada geese Tuesday morning.
The goose exterminators appeared to be part of New York City’s campaign to eliminate the birds, considered by the Bloomberg administration to be a threat to commercial airplanes.
Soehner told NBC New York she wanted to disrupt the team of goose killers, but was threatened by an employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
