Help Prevent Canada Geese from Being Killed

While walking to work last Saturday, I spotted a body in the middle of the road.

“No!” I thought. I can’t tell you how many times I have escorted a single-file family of Canada geese across the street the past few weeks. Sure enough, as I got closer, I saw feathers.

I took pictures, intent on getting goose-crossing signs mounted where they should’ve been posted years ago, put my phone away, walked a few feet farther, and noticed a baby (gosling) lying in the grass on the side of the road. This was a bad way to start my workday.

As soon as I got home that evening, I uploaded the photos to Facebook, where I tagged City of Westlake, Ohio, Government in a post asking what it would take for me to get goose-crossing signs posted between the park and playhouse. The city untagged itself and prevented me from being able to retag it.

Please sign and share this petition to get the mayor’s attention. God created geese; they have just as much right to live as we do.
