Those dinosaur decedents are pretty aggressive (and damn strong). A gaggle of geese vs. a domestic dog.. I might put my money on the birds.


My husband and I were walking our dog (a pug - hardly ferocious) and passed by a family of them just before the Newport Path one day. The adult geese started hissing at and charging us. Meanwhile, my dog hadn't even noticed them and was looking everywhere but at the geese.

They are NOT friendly at all!

Traditional geese breeding grounds are in Canada. These geese though have lost their desire to migrate and now live 24/7 in pretty much the same place. Urbanization has given them an all-year food source and have adapted to living in urban / semi-urban environments. For example, golf courses, with their well manicured lawns, provide an ample food source for geese.

The geese have probably been returning to these spots since before people showed up. It is encoded in their DNA to return to their birthplace and they have been doing so for generations. Maybe some of you need to check your "ewww they're dirty" mentality at the door. It's amazing the way I see people raising their kids around here. I walk past toddlers with my dogs and kids get this look on their face that is a vivid reflection of their parents neurosis. Go bath in purell.

BTW?

How many geese were there ? If it were 4 then you would have a mock Beatles album cover J.C. style.

Hopefully that will keep the leash on the dogs and the owners holding onto the leash.

Maybe we can convince 30 Acres to serve them, or suggest food pantries distribute them to the needy.

Ahh let's not be cruel to animals. I am sure there are better ways to keep goose/geese from being a nuisance.

I'm surprised the rats, coons and possums don't do the job for us. How about a special "dog off leash" goose harassment permit? I can imagine a decent sized terrier doing a pretty good job.

NJ has a generous Canada Goose hunting policy. There are 2 seasons that are 30 days long. For the winter one, the bag limit is 30 birds per day. Fall is 15 per day. Start buying shotgins.

Has anyone else noticed a significant increase in the geese population in the waterfront areas of Jersey City (Newport, Paulus Hook)? I've seen a lot of adult geese with babies all over the place. This morning they were down near The Pier apartments by Exchange Place. There's poop ALL over!
