Geese are bastards. They cackle at you and are even more aggressive when they have kids. The even hiss at you, even if you didn't notice them, but during you walk you was somewhere else with your mind. Even from meters away, when you are only just passing their nest. But the bastards among the bastards are definitely Canada Geese.



I am often on the countryside and I notice the increase in numbers of Canada Geese here on this side of the ocean, where they don't belong. They even push away our own local geese and ducks.

Recently I was in a safaripark. I saw our standard good-hearted duck just swimming, till he wanted to step out of the water. Then an canadian bounder came from meters away to push him back. Is that how to behave as a guest! That duck was born here, raised here and has the right to be here!

A little later I was walking on the path through that same safaripark. And alongside there were standing some of those canadian rogues. I told them, "You don't belong here! And you don't belong here! And you don't belong here either!". What do you think! Did they fly the whole way back to Canada? Hell no! They were just staring at me with that arrogant look, that meant to say "We're here to stay". No way!

Canadians, it's time that you take your responsibility! Keep you geese with you! I don't know what your national dishes are, but outside the frenchspeaking areas it can't be much. Caribou Nuggets of McBeaver or something like that. May I suggest to add the Canada Goose to your national dish and that you eat one every week. And that you stuff your jackets and pillows with their feathers. That way the problem could be solved.

They used to be protected. But that was before 2011:
Some legalese, found on the internet, if you can trust that wrote:

Canada goose has been moved from Schedule 1 to Schedule 5 of the Wildlife Act. This means the species is no longer managed by fish and game councils but is now “not protected”.

Anyone can hunt or kill geese at any time of year without a need for a game licence. Permits are no longer required to control geese on private land. Hunters wanting to hunt geese on conservation land still need to obtain a hunting permit but no longer need a game licence.

That goose looks pretty fanatical. Soon they'll be riding around in white pick-up trucks.

You could always hunt them as migratory birds (at least in my lifetimd).

Was reading "Fly by Wire: The Geese, the Glide, the Miracle on the Hudson" - a great book - and learned a good bit about geese (there was an entire chapter on them). One thing that surprised me was that many places in the U.S. actually began stocking non-migratory geese years ago because people thought they added a nice touch and didn't like to see them leaving out of season.

From that linked Wikipedia article it looks like we are trying to control them - perhaps they need to be hunted commercially instead of on an individual ad hoc basis?

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

A sure sign of autumn here in KC is when we see the Canada geese start migrating. My wife and I saw a small flock of them flying the other morning, but they weren't headed south. Instead, they looked to be headed east to a small, multi-acre pond a few blocks over. There's a group of them that seem to winter-over there, as the water never gets cold enough to fully freeze.

I believe there's also a decent-sized flock that lives year-round on a similar pond at 95th and Metcalf (NE corner), at the former Sprint campus. Or it could be the same flock that just travels back and forth, since the two ponds are about 10-12 miles apart.

I thought Western Europeans loved foie gras. The Canadians just want you to be able to eat all the foods you love!
