Take Action: Save Mamaroneck Geese

Please call Mamaroneck Mayor Norm Rosenblum & the Village Trustees and tell them to cancel the mean-spirited plan to slaughter Canada geese.

Next, the geese are gassed or shot to death. Ask the Mayor and the Trustees if they imagine such immorality is preferable to cleaning the grass and modifying some habitat and landscapes.
