    Ocean County Parks & Recreation has budgeted $218,419.00 specifically to the US Department of Agriculture earmarked for killing wildlife. Methods to be used are either baiting & catching animals with rocket netting and or use of paralysis drug alphacholalose. Then the wildlife will be packed into a truck & gassed. Please take action immediately. Tell these people to stop killing NJ wildlife with our tax dollars.

    Sorry, but geese need to be removed from parks. Too many geese make the parks unusable for humans and human use is what the taxpayers are paying for.

    Locally, the Canada geese are humanely killed and the meat goes to the food bank, which seems to me to be a better plan. Also, volunteers are out in the spring oiling eggs so they won't hatch, which reduces the numbers slightly.

    Fortunately, there isn't a problem in my location with people turning unwanted pet geese loose in the parks. If they did, those geese would be killed, too.

    If you don't want to have the geese killed, volunteer to take them all, keep them at your house securely penned, and buy all their feed.
