Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Many hundreds of geese on the soccer field this morning...

It's an ancient wetland somewhat "restored" as a flood control basin.

A terrible compromise, but otherwise it would have been a big dead pipe with McMansions built on top.

Another Motrin coffee breakfast and beer lunch for Hunter.

I need a hug.

1. Geese love to eat grass...animal control folks love geese and golf courses

because this combo can get a poor guy through snowless winter months.

3. Which can make them dangerous to some environments

 

They eat so much tall grass that shades rivers, it can impact salmonoid development

4. How many tons of feces did the geese leave behind?

I would hate to play soccer on any field after an infestation of geese.

5. You're just feeling low because Mitt's gone

Cheer up. Politics is still a target rich environment.
