Bend Parks and Rec is declaring its geese hazing program a success and so will not kill any geese this year. Last year the Parks District euthanized more than 100 geese to decrease the unmanageable geese population in area parks. Paul Stell with Parks and Rec says they're feeling pretty good about what they’ve accomplished. “We've managed to cut the population just about in half from last year. The hazing program and egg oiling, we're made a lot of headway.” Stell says the current geese count is around 250, down from more than 400 last year. He says their volunteer hazing program has been very effective in getting the geese to move on.
