Last summer, when the city first announced that 2,000 Canada geese would be killed to help prevent bird strikes on planes departing from Kennedy and LaGuardia airports, they said nothing about Prospect Park, it’s not even located in the 5 mile kill zones they created. But with the help of murderous biologists, the feds moved in, rounded up 400 of the birds, and gassed them, practically erasing the familiar feathered fiends from the landscape. |NYT|
