GOOSE SHEPHERDING—OLE!

GOOSE SHEPHERDING—OLE!

Goose management ideas range

From shooing to literal exchange…

White paddles to shoo

And chemicals too,

While letting the little ones age.

A kayak for the pond,

Of that are they really fond…?

To shoo out of water

The goose son or daughter,

Away from refuge they depend upon.

Occasionally family trots

In line to their feeding plots…

During the day

They’ll get away

With trespassing human haunts!

So when will the dogs be brought in,

When pond flocking will be a sin…?

This one family

Who lives here for free

Get collectively hit on the chin.

–Jonathan Caswell

WHAT A PITY!

WHAT A PITY!

One goose family has six

Little darlings marching betwixt….

Their Mom and Dad,

For some it is sad

Knowing that soon they’ll be nixed.

Atlantic Goose Management here,

Will drive off our flocks with fear….

They’re siccing dogs*

To clear bogs,

Some of us will be shedding tears!

–Jonathan Caswell

* Or…”sicking the dogs”…either spelling is used.
