Emails note that there are other management techniques besides occasional mass slaughter, which, alone, probably won't fix the problem permanently. (Didn't Little Rock parks people put a dog to work at the Rebsamen Park golf course on this task?)
Help me hunters. What kind of sport will be involved in this "hunt," which would be Dec. 20-22? TV footage seems to indicate these geese aren't too hard to sneak up on.
PS — Levy correspondent suggests the commodore float the sub upstream a bit and try torpedoes.
UPDATE: Assistant Little Rock City Manager Bryan Day confirms my memory that a Border collie was used to end a goose problem at Rebsamen. His report — circulate to NLR aldermen:
Her name is Fern and although she is an old dog now, she still remains at the course. It took a while, but she eventually scared all the geese away and they no longer land on the golf course.
Update II: Get your earplugs. The Council approved the kill Monday night.
