Kiley Blackman, the founder of nonprofit group Westchester4Geese, spoke to Larchmont Patch at Harbor Island yesterday about how other municipalities have handled the problem of goose overpopulation.
Blackman has asked for a meeting with Village of Mamaroneck officials, to discuss alternatives to the goose slaughter that's scheduled for this summer. She said she became involved with the cause again after the City of Yonkers culled geese last year in an effort to control the population.
So far, Yonkers has been the only Westchester municipality to slaughter geese, said Blackman. Scarsdale reconsidered a plan to cull geese, however, they canceled their plans after public outcry.
