Protest Geese Gassings at Mayor's Mansion This Monday Night.

This rally is being organized by Friends of Animals:

When: Monday, August 9th, 6PM -- 8 PM.

Where: Mayor Bloomberg's mansion -- 17 East 79th Street. (bet Fifth ave and Madison).

Why: Protest NYC plan with USDA to "reduce" 80% of Canada Geese within NYC Metropolitan area. On July 8th of this year, 368 geese and goslings were rounded up, bound and gassed at NYC's Prospect Park in Brooklyn. This, despite the fact there were no non-lethal alternatives implemented before slaughter and there was no notification to the community. Almost 100% of the geese at Prospect Park were exterminated despite government's call to "reduce" populations by 80%. According to Audubon Society, that is "management to extinction." -- PCA
