Parksville goose cull is upsetting

Shame on Parksville for approving such a horrendous event.

Re: the goose cull.

Shame on Parksville for approving such a horrendous event. All the geese screamed and suffered all through this cull/kill. There is nothing humane about this process. They suffer more than you are aware of, which is what happens with many of these culls/kills.

I have done enough research to know that they are terrorized, cannot fly and are totally defenceless. There are always injuries/traumas no matter how “cleanly” they say it can be done.

It has been very upsetting for many of us and as a new resident to B.C. it has shocked me to see this happening here. All who voted in favour of this disaster have blood on their hands.

You should all be ashamed.
