Honk if you want to save the Burns Park geese

Of course. The Burns Park Canada goose flock, scheduled for a mass slaughter Dec. 20-22 in a "hunt" approved by the North Little Rock City Council, now has a Facebook page.

Better still, the geese are Twittering:

PLEASE sign our petition asking the city not to rustle our feathers so much when kicking us out of the park

And about that on-line petition: Here it is, attention to Gunnery Officer Pat Hays, commodore of the Dogtown fleet and mayor of Argenta.

I heard on TV last night that "hunters" are beating down the doors to apply to take part in the "hunt" of this resident bird population to reduce it from 200 to 50.

Get a border collie.
