Moncton, N.B., is hoping to discourage geese from nesting near two popular walking trails in the city’s west end.
Dan Hicks, the director of parks operations, said the number of geese at Centennial Park and Jones Lake is increasing.
“The population has grown to such a degree here in the local Moncton area that the goose and human interactions are becoming less friendly,” Hicks said.
Last summer, there were complaints about the amount of droppings left on the two trails. Moncton city council agreed to spend thousands of dollars to try and fix the problem last fall.
