The multitude of geese that call Drake Park and several other city locations home have been a source of irritation for the Bend Parks and Recreation District for years. It's not the geese themselves, but the mess they leave behind. Now officials are faced with another decision on dealing with them again. Last summer, they used lethal measures to kill some geese and that caused uproar with animal loving residents. "We’re working on a non-lethal program right now and hopefully, that will be successful. We’ll know come summer, whether or not we got the job done. We’re going to try and beef this program up with some more volunteers and get people involved who have trained dogs that can help herd the geese out of the parks." Paul Stell with the Parks Department says recent counts indicate there are about 100 fewer geese than the last count, so some of their efforts are paying off. They are working with the City Council to pass an ordinance against feeding the geese in the park. What is your opinion? We have a poll here on the KBND website about controlling the geese population.
