Park Service catches 116 Canada geese from D.C. park, donates meat to group that helps feed the homeless

The 100 pounds of meat was donated to the D.C. Central Kitchen and will be used in meals for homeless shelters, rehabilitation clinics and after school programs

WASHINGTON —
Officials say 100 pounds of meat from geese caught in a Washington park have been donated to an organization that distributes food to the homeless and others.

The National Park Service says in a statement that meat from 116 Canada geese was donated to the D.C. Central Kitchen last week. The Park Service says it will be used in meals the kitchen prepares for homeless shelters, rehabilitation clinics and after school programs. It’s the second year the park service has donated goose meat to the kitchen.

The Park Service says the geese were caught in Anacostia Park and euthanized in July as part of an effort to manage the park’s wetlands. The geese feed on wetland plants.

Exactly what Wicomico County needs to do - they would get 2,000 pounds of meat easily.

It is being done here in the county but done without all the publicly do to the tree hugging turds crying.

I have eaten breast meat from "resident" Canada geese. Believe me, you don't want it. I would rather eat raw liver instead.

I would rather this be done for Salisbury. Much better than seeing the geese hit and laying in the road.

Less than a pound of meat from each goose. Must have been skinny geese.
