Ocean County Plans a New Way to Control Geese
To put it mildly, Canada Geese can be a nuisance. Not only with their honking, but with the mess that they leave behind. This year, Ocean County Parks and Recreation is teaming up with the Humane Society of the US to undertake a new strategy to control our goose population, and you can help.
The Humane Society of the United States advocates “addling”. Basically they use a few methods to prevent eggs from hatching, and as a result they keep the population down.
This year the HSUS is working with the Ocean County Department of Parks & Recreation to bring this method of population control to the Jersey shore, and they’re asking for your help. On March 19th, the Humane Society and Ocean County officials will hold a training workshop for humanely controlling goose populations at Jakes Branch County Park in Beachwood.
