Who Killed the Geese?
On a recent day, in broad daylight, on two ponds owned by the village of Pinehurst near Lakeshore and McQueen roads, two adult Canada geese were shot and killed. Their goslings, who watched their parents die, cannot be found.
A woman who has had contact with these nearly tame geese for years was standing on her porch and watched the geese -- one after the other -- shot and killed. She did not see who shot them. This is a sickening, deranged act. It's also a crime.
Firing a weapon within city limits is illegal. It is also a federal offense to kill a Canada goose (a federal migratory bird). If anyone saw or knows anything about this, please contact the Pinehurst Police Department immediately.
