Group protests the killing of golf course geese

YONKERS - Animal activists are renewing their complaints about the killings of several hundred geese at a Yonkers golf course.

City officials say the Westchester County Parks Department removed 470 Canada geese from the Sprain Lake Golf Course. The geese were later killed and their meat was sent to local food pantries.

Animal activists are firing back claiming the meat isn't safe to eat and the animals shouldn't have been killed in the first place.

The county executive has agreed to meet with the protesters on Sept. 13. Geese from WC golf course made into burgers to feed the hungryAnimal activists cry foul following mass geese euthanasiaWC Parks Dept. guts gross geese residue
