URGENT -- CALL TO ACTION ADVISORY
Humane Society Encourages the Community
Voice Objections Against Goose Slaughter
– In an effort to control the Canada Goose
population, the Milwaukee County Parks Department
has obtained a permit to round up and kill geese
in County Parks this summer.
Wisconsin Humane Society believes that “habitat
modification” – changing the landscape features
in the parks to make them less attractive to geese
– the continued use of non-toxic repellents and
the continued use of egg-addling by Parks employees
provide the best long-term, humane solution to problems
with geese and their droppings in the parks.
Humane Society urges Milwaukee County residents
to call their Milwaukee County Supervisor to voice
their opinion about the County's proposed killing
of Canada Geese in the Parks.
Wildlife manager at the Wisconsin Humane Society,
involved in implementing humane techniques for controlling
the impact of the goose population in Milwaukee
will be available to talk with the media about this
issue and discuss humane solutions for controlling
geese. To schedule a time to talk with Scott,
please call Michelle Pintar at (414) 431-6104.
