Re: ponds/plants/geese

We have a problem with geese here along the river, so I'm interested in
reading about the various solutions. Using border collies is, so far, the
one that appeals to me most. These little dogs live to work, herding things.
They don't care if it's cattle or cats or birds. So here is a solution
providing pleasure for the dogs, employment for their handlers and annoying
the geese just enough to persuade them to congregate elsewhere. The
community spends some money and gets parks unfouled by goose droppings (no
pun intended, but there it is.)
