Outlook Ohio News: Tired of Goose Poop, It is Your Chance to Voice Your Opinion
“Geese and their waste ruin youth sports and picnics, make it unpleasant for the elderly who like to walk in the parks, and the waste gets all over dogs’ paws,” said Annissa Essaibi George, a Boston city councilor who this week introduced a measure to drive the messy pests from the city’s parks, playgrounds, ballfields, golf courses and waterways.
The poop can make humans sick and pollute waterways, said the first-term councilor, a mother of four whose family trips to the park have been ruined by goose poop. Two years ago, after plastic coyotes didn’t do the trick, frustrated officials in Columbus, Ohio, used laser beams and explosives in efforts to keep geese from fouling the banks of the Olentangy River.
