Border Collies Chase Geese Away

"Nothing spooks a Canada goose like Louie the border collie and his business partner, Tug. The canine agents, dressed in orange life jackets, send their targets honking from ponds on golf courses, cemeteries and college campuses."

If the officials in charge of parks and recreation in Brooklyn, New York had used a team of Border Collies to keep the Canada Geese population at bay, all those put to death (read previous post) would still be enjoying life. Border Collies are also extremely effective near airports and other locales where geese can compromise air travel safety.
