If there's one thing to prove your local media is full of sh!t, just ask yourself this one question. Why didn't they show you the alleged Food Bank or FAMILY/PERSON these alleged geese were fed to?
With Avian TB being so abundant here on the Shore, (especially in the Salisbury Zoo) who in their right mind would feed sick animals to the homeless or needy. That's just the beginning.
Who allegedly PLUCKED 300 geese? Certainly not one of the local chicken/turkey companies. How many babies were a part of the 300? Considering it's that time of year where the babies are just about everywhere, the easiest geese to catch are the babies, then the caretakers/parents. There's a LOT more to this story, yet your local media made this thing sound like Ocean Pines was doing a great thing.
Why not pull 300 boats off the water instead?
Why now remove 300 septic systems in Ocean Pines instead?
We humans are polluting a whole lot more to our environment then 300 baby geese. Your local media continues to fail you and deliver political bullsh!t instead of the truth. I become the Anti Christ because God Forbid someone challenge all the BS they attempt to feed you.
Call WBOC. Ask them WHY they didn't deliver ANY evidence as to these alleged geese that were actually delivered to a local food bank. WHAT food bank? Show us ONE family that received this so called meat that might have Avian TB and IF in fact all 300 birds were tested for Avian TB!
If the residents of Ocean Pines would STOP feeding these animals, (including ducks and other wildlife) they wouldn't have an over abundance of wildlife disrupting their community. That goes for the Salisbury Zoo as well. We never had this problem in the past. Canada Geese migrated every year up until the Zoo started putting out hundreds of pounds of feed on the river every single day and they never needed to migrate again. Besides, they got FREE animals to fill the river for people to view all year round, what a deal.
This is the Eastern Shore. You want to get rid of the geese, let your labs off their leash and chase these damn geese until they get tired of hanging out around these ponds. Don't kill them simply because you don't like stepping in goose sh!t. And STOP making it sound like you're doing a wonderful thing by killing them to allegedly help the environment. Man, you people are so full of sh!t. All the while mamma runs , (by herself) to the liquor store in her 20 passenger SUV to get a pack of cigarettes and a 30 pack of Natural Light.
Your local media needs to deliver some answers here and do their job. This was slaughter, plain and simple.
