Canada goose control

  Canada_goose_33007_2   If your town or your own backyard has a Canada geese infestation, here's some good news.

  A recent e-mail from the Humane Society of the United States reports:

   "The United States Department of Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is making it easier for landowners to help humanely control Canada goose populations.

  "New federal regulations allow landowners who want to oil goose eggs or remove eggs from nests, to register and report nest numbers when the nesting season is over. 

   "In the past, the federal agency required that permits be obtained prior to handling and removing the eggs."

   The Humane Society suggests that to learn "how to implement an effective and humane geese management and egg addling program in your community," you contact the organization's Maggie Brasted at 301-548-7753 or mbrasted@hsus.org.

  New Jersey is accepting the federal registration and does not have any additional requirements.
