A gaggle of Canada geese has taken over riverfront park.
The currently accepted best practice for controlling nuisance geese is dogs--border collies mostly--that are trained to chase them away. There is even such a service right here in Columbia County: Wild Goose Chase NE.
But, alas, in March, the Common Council voted to continue the ban on dogs in Henry Hudson Riverfront Park. Is there a chance an exception could be made for goose-chasing dogs?
