Denver has a plan for dealing with the gaggle of geese and their poop causing problems in city parks, and it’s a tasty idea.
Move over, Colonel Sanders, there’s a new chef cooking up a different kind of bird, and these feathered friends deliver red meat delights.
Goose burgers will be processed and used to feed the hungry, which seems like a win-win for all involved.
But of course, there are some who object because they don’t believe
food animals should be killed and eaten
Sure, killing geese gets rid of them in the short term, but they just come back, says Marc Bekoff, professor emeritus of ecology and biology at the University of Colorado Boulder.
As zombies?! Good Lord! We’re certainly not in favor of zombie geese running around Denver’s parks devouring small children … oh wait, we just realized the professor meant to say that other geese will just take their place. We presume these would be alive. Anyway …
“They’re establishing a precedent that it’s OK to kill these birds,” Bekoff said. “Some people will say, ‘Well, we killed them last year and it worked for a couple of months, so let’s do it again. And again.’”
So you see, some are against this program to feed hungry families, because it sets a precedent to kill animals for food.
Need we say more?
