Now you, too, can get in the goose-management business, thanks to this new “How to” video from wildlife officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture!

The video is a classic of the genre, instructing would-be animal control agents how to humanely prevent geese from running so roughshod that federal officials need to come in under cover of darkness and slaughter all the waterfowl — as they did last year in Prospect Park.

In this instructional video, you’ll learn:

• Where to find goose nests!

• How to cover goose eggs with corn oil to prevent their development!

• How to protect yourself from the inevitable goose attack when you do that!

• How most of our waterways are filled with garbage (jump to 4:38 in the video)!

Bottom line? It’s must-see TV for every lover of Canada geese (and for lovers of federal video-making techniques).

Elizabeth from Fort Greene says:
Very informative and WAY better than gassing these beautiful birds.

In a perfect world, I would like to see them be left alone, but it's either something is done to save as many as they can or they will come in and kill every last one, correct?

Message to geese:

"We either kill you OR your babies."

Nice choice.
