Connecticut residents divided over federal law to remove Canada Geese
Many visitors to Bruce Park in Greenwich say Canada Geese are annoying, but they do not agree with a federal law making it easier to remove them. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is now allowing people to actually kill Canada Geese if they consider them to be a nuisance. The new law has several provisions that allow homeowners, public health officials and others to destroy nests and eggs, or even kill the geese, without having a federal permit. Greenwich resident John Sobelewski opposes the law. He believes controlling the geese population should be left to professionals. Others say Canada Geese need to be dealt with. They do not believe homeowners should have to get federal or state approval to get rid of the geese.
