Lake Wildwood: Blame it on the geese

“Lake Wildwood looks to remove geese, cites E. coli issues,” The Union is reporting.

“‘We feel that given the events of last July, we need to go to the next level to protect the health and well-being of our members and guests who use the lake,’ the memorandum (on Lake Wildwood’s website) states, according to The Union.

“The memorandum doesn’t use the word ‘kill,’ but that possibility is real and it’s stirred anger among some in the Lake Wildwood community.”

    1. I have a niece living in a small town in Ohio and they have the same problem. The politicians believe just shooting them will solve the over population !!! Which now is creating a larger issue among their citizens by using this inhumane method !!!
      Cheers,

  1. Wild geese can be annoying, but they sure beat the hell out of pesky alligators here in NE Florida that seemingly prowl in every body of water larger than a mud puddle.

    1. The only predator for the geese in Lake Wildwood is a golf cart. Perhaps some balance is called for—-Let a few Coyotes in the gate every once in a while. Or—Steve – send a few of those alligators from Florida.

  2. Wonder if the Health Department has surveyed the residences along Deer Creek upstream who may use the creek as their leach field?
