Suffering from an over-abundant population of 250,000 resident Canada geese, New York will attempt to reduce that figure to 85,000 birds.
The action plan - and as reported by The New York Times - was five months in the making. It comes on the heals of the 2009 crash of U.S. Airways' Flight 1549 into the Hudson River.
Geese were held responsible, the birds being sucked into the jet's engines.
All captured geese will be euthanized.
Boy, would my two Labrador retrievers like to go on that mission.
