NY Senator Seeks To Allow Goose Killing Near JFK Airport

This doesn't bold well for geese in the NYC area!

Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand wants to introduce legislation to make it easier to round up and kill them.

But wildlife advocates are NOT down this new approach.

A JetBlue flight bound for Florida had to emergency land at Westchester County Airport while an El Lay bound jet had an emergency pit stop at JFK due to birds crashing into the sides of the planes.

Most famously, a plane was ditched into the Hudson River three years ago.

Gillibrand wants to remove all Canadian geese from the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge during June and July, when geese are molting and can't fly.

Activists believe that this would endanger the birds and even pilots state that birds are unavoidable.

Efforts to police geese including euthanasia, dogs, falcons, scaring them, and tampering with their eggs.

But they still keep coming back…THEY'RE INVINCIBLE!!! LOLz!

We'll see if the legislation holds up or if the geese will live on…

Terrorizing airports and car windshields.
