Save the Burns Park geese, UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Dec 2, 2011 at 11:48 AM

SET FOR SLAUGHTER: Burns Parks Canada geese.
  • SET FOR SLAUGHTER: Burns Park's Canada geese.

For reasons unclear, Facebook took down the original page established to organize opposition to a mass slaughter of the sitting geese in Burns Park. It's scheduled for Dec. 20-22.

Undeterred, opponents of the so-called "hunt" of the resident Canada goose flock have another page going.

Here's where to link in with the Coalition to Save the Geese of Burns Park.

I'm enjoying the tall-talking gun nuts on Twitter who are licking their chops at some easy goose killing. They appear to have no hunting interest in eating this golf course chemical-tainted meat, just in the blasting. They want to give the meat to the homeless and poor. Beware of boys like this bearing gifts, street people. If they won't eat it, you shouldn't either.

Get a border collie and oil the eggs, Commodore Hays.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
