(WTOP) WASHINGTON — Pesky geese at two parks in Maryland will soon be turned into food for the homeless, after attempts to control their population by non-lethal methods over the years have failed.
David Petersen, natural resources specialist for Montgomery Parks, said that 100 to 150 geese will be taken from Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Park in Silver Spring, Maryland and Rock Creek Regional Park near Gaithersburg.
The bird round up is expected to happen between the end of June and the middle of July. The geese will be processed and the meat will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank.
