If you’d like to be on or off this Outdoors/Rural/wildlife/hunting/hiking/backpacking/National Parks/animals list please FR mail me. And ping me is you see articles of interest.

Needless to say allowing citizens to hunt the geese and maybe donate some to food kitchens would be a non starter.

Any tree worshiper that opposes this should be required to fly in and out of JFK 5 times a day,every day.JFK is,perhaps,the most important airport in the world and every day it handles everything from the biggest commercial aircraft in the world (the A380),dozens of 747s (probably more) and other jumbos from all over the world.

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Wednesday proposed making it easier to round up geese from a federal refuge near Kennedy Airport and kill them, an idea that's meeting opposition from wildlife advocates.

Canada geese are rats of the air. Getting rid of a few dozen or a few hundred near an airport has zero effect on their population.

Attention PETA and Sierra Club...please pick up the white courtesy phone. One of your loons has left the asylum.

LOL...I just love it when the libtards form a circular firing squad.

Maybe some sort of grate over the engine intake sized just smaller than the average goose would help.

Said the animal rights whacko: “The killing just doesn’t work,” she said. “We have to focus on learning to coexist with these birds.”

Says the Guru: In all known cases, dead birds killed in airport avian population reduction programs were never found to be impacting aircraft.

As for coexisting with birds, mankind has, over the centuries, developed numerous and time tested methods of “coexisting” with birds. Recently, the microwave oven has opened new vistas in human-avian coexistence.

Yummers!

Border Collies are an excellent choice for scaring the 5hit out of these big birds. Borders can run all day, they’re obedient, they are incredibly smart, and they love to please their owners. These big birds will are far more likely to land if they see other birds there, but if they see borders, they won’t land.

End of problem.

When I was still working at U of Dayton we had a big bird-strike project.

Part of the project was to develop computer models for predicting the effects of bird strikes on aircraft windscreens. That was funded by the Air Force. Our design of windscreens saved quite a few pilots lives.

My part of the project was funded by the FAA. It was in two parts. One involved developing statistical models to predict the likelihood of a bird being sucked into a jet engine, as a function of season, time of day, etc. The other was to develop a model for the likelihood of damage to the engine, as a function of bird weight. We had data available to us on literally hundreds of bird ingestions, world-wide.

That was nearly 20 years ago. I have no idea what the current situation is.

Build this in the sanctuary. It's the perfect politically correct solution.

Does’t a sitting US Senator have better things to do?

Howsabout the owner of the damn airport exercising some of their own common sense.....and a 12 gauge.
