The Gone Goose Story That Would Not Die

That gross goose story about the fowl slaughter at Tiger Point Golf Course & Bird Mausoleum just won't die. Nowhere near as fast as the geese did, anyway.

A web site called The Canada Goose Hall of Shame has reprinted a local news story about the whole thing, and then followed it up with a "Note" to local journalists and club members.

To Tom McLaughlin and other Pensacola area reporters who covered the story using the word "euthanasia" to describe the ultimate fate of the geese, the Goose Hall of Shame says:
We strongly object to the use of the word "euthanasia." Euthanasia is defined as the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy.

The geese murdered in Gulf Breeze were not hopelessly sick or injured, nor was their death relatively painless. Being poisoned by carbon dioxide gas is an extremely cruel method of killing the healthy geese who hurt no one. Please CLICK HERE to see how geese are gassed.
To Tiger Point club members, the Hall of Shame adds:
Those of you who golf at this club and oppose their cruel and barbaric method of removing the geese should stop golfing there. Send the management a message that their cruel methods will not be condoned!
From all we hear about management-member relations at Tiger Point, if the members 'stopped golfing ' there, management would be delighted.
