The honeymoon is just about over for Missouri’s Canada geese. The once-endangered bird is starting to overpopulate the state’s urban areas. Missouri has a target of 40,000 birds; this summer their numbers grew to 70,000. Next summer, the Conservation Department will probably start destroying eggs either by shaking them or spraying them with oil. If necessary, they’ll round the geese up for meat processing. The largest problems are reported in Kansas City and St. Louis where problems range from damaged lawns and golf courses to water pollution and messy goose droppings.
