My apartment building forms an L shape with the neighboring building (they are attached at the corners) and both overlook a marsh and a pond.

Every spring there are a couple of Canadian geese and a few ducks that come back. The two geese had 4 babies, who are so cute and fuzzy right now! The ducks also had a bunch of babies, too.

Thursday one of my new neighbors who lives on the first floor and has a walk out apartment had some people over to watch the hockey game and barbecue. I don't really mind that at all, but after they had eaten, they were all outside, and one guy was chasing the geese... then later they were harassing them in the water.. probably throwing rocks at them. :mad: They also left cigarette butts all over the lawn and empty bottles, that have yet to be cleaned up.

Then this morning my neighbor told me that one of the other neighbors who has a dog purposely RAN after the geese with the dog barking. I think it was the male goose and he was VERY flustered and loud. I am suprised he didn't attack the stupid guy and his dog. :mad:

Keep in mind these people are in their late 20's or older.. WTH?!

Oh that is sad. There are a bunch of them where I work, and there are sooo many babies too! I love watching them, and the babies are growing so fast.

Drunk-ass jerks!
Exactly!!

We have stupid neighbors too and I swear if we saw a moving van outside the whole block would show up to help them load up!

Understand the angst at the neighbors...but my dogs are allowed free run with my company on our golf course ONLY if they chase the geese...so that one is hard for me!

Um - I agree that is uncivilized behavior - but - Canada geese are roundly despised around here. We have volunteer groups that go around shaking eggs or coating them with some sort of oil that prevents the embryo from maturing. They are a HUGE nuisance.

These are not migratory populations BTW - but resident geese. In most parks (and any location with a large lawn and a water source) in Northern NJ you cannot walk 2 feet without stepping into goose poop. It is literally everywhere.
