New York Undertakes Mass Geese Euthanization

About 700 Canadian geese from the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in New York have been rounded up by the federal government for euthanization. It seems the birds are causing problems for airplanes that are flying nearby. Remember the U.S. Airways Flight 1549 out of LaGuardia in 2009 that landed in the Hudson River? Birds being sucked into both of the airplane’s engines caused the emergency landing.
