MISHAWAKA, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana city has hired a contractor to remove and kill 400 Canada geese from a golf course and three parks.

Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood told the South Bend Tribune (https://bit.ly/2adxynx) the contractor was hired after attempts to scare off the geese with bottle rockets, golf carts and even a fake coyote failed.

Dawn Wiggins, office manager and partial owner of Elkhart-based Critter Control of Northcentral Indiana, says the geese were rounded up and exterminated according to state and federal guidelines, then buried. Wiggin says Mishawaka will end pay at least $10,000, given Critter Control’s charge of $25 per bird.

Wood said residents have complained about geese attacking them and their kids in the parks and about geese causing traffic hazards crossing roads.
