Large goose population annoys Denver residents
A Denver neighborhood has an interesting solution to an influx of geese.

Residents in Denver's Washington Park neighborhood are dealing with a honkin' problem. Geese. Lots of geese.

"This year has been really bad," one woman said.

"These geese are territorial, and they're just widening their territory," resident Lynn Josef explained.

"And for Lynn Josef, it's not just what the Canada geese are leaving behind but also the city's solution that's really cooked her goose," the KMGH reporter said.

So here's the city's solution: the Goosinator. It's pretty much a "scare-away-the-geese" robot.

But the Goosinator is one of the city's only options, as Canadian geese are a federally protected bird.

Some aren't convinced.

"It's a waste of money," Josef said.

And some aren't bothered by the feathered waterfowl to begin with.

"I guess if you don't have any other problems, they're a problem. ... It's nice to go to the park, and it's nice to see them," one man told KMGH.

But the city told KMGH it has received quite a few complaints since the geese migrated to the area years ago.
