Dear Ms. Adjamine,
Thank you for sharing your concerns about the removal of Canada Geese from Prospect Park this past summer.
As the owner of two rescued dogs whom I love very dearly, I can certainly understand why this situation has upset many people, and I appreciate you calling for more humane solutions to this matter.
As you may know, the removal of these geese involved all levels of government, including federal, state and multiple local agencies, and I believe it's important that we strike the proper balance between human air passenger safety and animal rights.
I have taken the liberty of forwarding a copy of your letter to the staff of the Council's Health and Transportation Committees so that they are fully aware of the concerns you have raised about the removal of these geese. Please be assured that we will continue to keep a close eye on this situation.
Thanks again for sharing your concerns with me. Your advocacy on behalf of these and other animals is greatly appreciated.

Not only does Ms. Quinn fail to address the questions raised in my response to her, but she sends out the very same dismissive letter sent several months ago. -- the one that repeatedly and euphemistically refers to the goose gassings as "removals." (Removals to where, I ask. "Disneyworld?")
