Canadian geese 'out of hand' on waterfront, councillor says

Windsor city councillor Alan Halberstadt said there are too many geese along the waterfront.
Earlier this year, the city rounded up and moved geese from a pond near Windsor International Airport.

Windsor city councillor Alan Halberstadt said there are too many geese along the waterfront.

He raised the issue at last night's council meeting.

"I keep getting complaints from people that are saying that these geese, unfortunately, are eating all our grass down there, and they're really getting out of hand," Halberstadt said.

City engineer Mario Sonego reminded council geese are protected species.
