WASHINGTON (AP) - National Park officials say dogs will be used to move Canada geese from parts of the National Mall because the bird droppings are damaging the pumps and filters of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.
WUSA-TV (https://on.wusa9.com/1HjqDb3) reports Border collies will relocate geese from parts of the National Mall, including the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument grounds and John F. Kennedy Hockey Fields.
National Park Police also say that the geese’s droppings are a potential health hazard and degrade the park’s natural and cultural resources.
Members of the National Park Service and Geese Police, Inc., the contractor to provide the service, showed the Border collies off Thursday.
