Dealing with Canada Geese: Make Lunch, Not Landfills

This summer, New York State announced a plan to help control its Canada goose population by eliminating some 170,000 birds through gassing, hunting, and birth control. In Prospect Park, some 400 geese were rounded up and euthanized, their bodies then tossed in a landfill. According to hunter, writer, and locavore activist Jackson Landers, this is a huge waste of good meat. Landers, in association with Slow Food NYC, is hosting a workshop this Saturday, October 30, at the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center in Park Slope that will address how to safely hunt, butcher, and cook Canada goose. Village Voice
