The parks department needs your help. The geese and goslings at West Park are being maliciously injured. We would like to prosecute the individual(s) responsible. Canada Geese are protected under the Federal Migratory Bird Act of 1918 . This Act makes it illegal to harm or injure a goose and damage or move its eggs and nest, without a Federal permit. Not complying with the Federal Act can result in fines ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 and this also applies to an untrained dog’s actions. If you witness anyone hurting the animals within our parks please call 911 to inform a Park Ranger. Thank You.
