Senseless goose murder

To hear that 484 geese were killed was devastating

To hear that 484 geese were killed was devastating. The cull was allowed because people feared they would contaminate the water, damage the estuary, children would get sick and that they were a “nuisance.”

This was an excuse to execute murder. Why did the people allow this? The Island is full of nature and animals. Learn to appreciate the beauty of it, not destroy it.

I cannot change the opinions of others, but I bow my head in shame for this senseless act, which was the murder of 484 innocent lives.

As people, we have been taught to believe hurting others is wrong, and it is. Why do so many people not appreciate an animal’s life? They seem to think that they can simply get rid of them when they don’t want them anymore.

To kill nearly 500 birds because they were a nuisance? Since when is life valued so little? It was shameful, cruel, and senseless.
