238 geese were euthanized with carbon dioxide on June 26 at Mill Creek MetroParks, but the criticism hasn’t let up yet.
The Vindicator reports that a board meeting held July 14 attracted many geese enthusiasts who questioned the park board’s decision to kill the geese instead of taking alternative actions. In recent years, the geese had become defensive at times and had disturbed the Lily Pond area.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources issued Mill Creek MetroParks a permit to euthanize the geese. The geese were rounded up from the Lily Pond, Lake Glacier and Newport Wetlands areas. The park board stands behind their decision in regards to the geese.
