The Arkansas Times filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the 106 lucky people who won the lottery to be allowed to kill two geese in Burns Park Dec. 20-22 as part of a sanctioned hunt to reduce the population of Canada geese in the park.
No Christmas geese for them. Mayor Pat Hays postponed the hunt to consider alternatives for goose population reduction. But the list may be reactivated for a January hunt.
Meanwhile, we noted one thing interesting about the list. Of the 106 names, only one seemed an obvious woman's name, Crystal Brown. The rest of the would-be geese slayers all carried manly monikers.
