Well, given my own love/hate relationship with Canadian geese, I can certainly understand why the park officials feel they have to take action… though in the end I think I come down against killing them.
I hate goose poo all over the place as much as anyone. Reno has its own problems with having too many geese, and them not being migratory anymore but having actually settled down here. The parks are less enjoyable, but…
I always come back to why the geese are here in the first place and that they have as much right to what remains of nature as the human beings do.
So… while I don’t live in Oregon, I think I’ll participate in a bit of the memorial service for them anyway. Its only a matter of time before people start trying to do this here.
