Mayor Bloomberg was asked about the recent Canada geese gassings—with 290 killed in Prospect Park, and around 170,000 more to go. But while many New Yorkers are upset about the mass killings, Bloomberg is in full support of it. He told the Wall Street Journal, “Look, the Department of Agriculture has to deal with the fact that all these geese are a danger to people flying. People are not going to stop flying and we have to make a decision. It’s geese or human beings—I can tell you where I come out on that. I don’t think you need a quote from me.” In the past 10 years, there have been 78 goose strikes in New York—the most famous being that of US Airways Flight 1549, which was forced to land in the Hudson River.
