Now that all the geese of Prospect Park lake have been exterminated in a stunning act of gossicide, The Brooklyn Paper takes a look at the winners and losers:
Fishermen: It will be a lot easier to catch that big bass now that the geese won’t be getting hooked.
Swans and ducks: They’ll no longer be competing with aggressive geese for breadcrumbs and other scraps. The whole lake is theirs.
Air travelers: No need to worry about another “bird strike” — if the feds have their way, there will be no geese within seven miles of all city airports.
Geese: They’re all dead.
Parents: How do they answer the tough question, “Mommy, where did all the geese go?”
Tupper Thomas: Park Administrator has gone silent, just as Prospect Park Alliance donors are wondering what is going on.
