Original post made on Apr 20, 2010

The serene waterways at Amador Lakes in Dublin are attractive to more than the residents. Canadian geese have been making themselves at home in the 45-acre park-like setting almost since it opened in 1985.

Nothing like a blast in the *** with a load of buckshot to one goose to prune the aggessiveness of the whole flock! [Portion removed by Gina Channell-Allen because it was off topic]

If you would like to help we have begun a list of possible solutions at Web Link under the heading "what to do next". Any additions to this list would also be appreciated and we especially encourage those who may have experience in this area to look and offer suggestions as to what they have done in the past. Obviously, we are looking for non-violent answers so please don't fill our post up with ways to kill geese. Thank you,
Ross

SUGGESTION AS AN EXPERINCED GOOSE REMOVER, I RECCOMEND LOADIND A GOOD GOOSE GUN (BROWNING MAKES A NICE 12ga TAKES 3 1/2 SHELLS) TO LEAGLE CAPACITY, LAY IN WAIT, THEN BAM BAM BAM, THATS THREE GEESE REMOVED, THEN RELOAD AND DO IT AGAIN, THATS THREE MORE. EVENTUALLY YOU WONT HAVE ANY MORE GEESE TO BOTHER YOU ANY MORE. I HAVE USED THIS TECHNIQUE MANY TIMES AND IT IS VERY EFFECTIVE AT REMOVING GEESE. HOPE I HAVE BEEN HELPFUL. PLEASE REMEMBER TO EAT OR SHARE WITH SOMEONE WHO WILL EAT, ALL THE FINE GEESE YOU HAVE REMOVED.

I saw a documentary about aggressive birds on a golf course. They tried everything, but when they brought in trained dogs the birds scattered ... well ... like birds.
