1,662 Geese Killed By Colorado Officials to Shrink the Population
According to Colorado officials, there are approximately 5,000 geese that live in Denver year-round.
Since the geese population is so large 1,662 geese were killed, cooked and given to families in need from a private organization.
Personally, I think that is a brilliant idea. I'm not really a geese kind of person. They make such a mess in some parks that you can't even enjoy the park.
Geese are mean too. I've had one chase me and bark at me while I was on a run. Scared the tar out of me.
One goose bit my daughter while she was in her stroller at the zoo because it wanted her cookie. Not a fan.
Officials have completed the number geese that will be killed this year and will re-evaluate for next year.
I know this sounds bad, but I'm glad that these suckers have been controlled. I know there are some that don't agree with me as there have been petitions going around to spare the geese.
