August 10, 2020, Denver, CO - Canada Geese Protection Colorado (CGPC) acknowledges the recent “Update Summary of 2020 Goose Management Efforts” by Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) Deputy Executive Director Scott Gilmore that “although we do not have final data…
First Gentleman Marlon Reis calls for a "forward-thinking approach to urban wildlife management" and shares that wildlife biologists say Denver Parks and Recreation's "year-to-year culling of urban wildlife is costly to taxpayers, scientifically ineffective as a long-term solution, and woefully inhumane."
In the pre-dawn hours of Friday, July 10, 2020, Denver Parks and Recreation and the USDA Wildlife Services herded Denver's Canada geese out of the water, corralled them tightly in fences, picked them up by their necks and wings, stuffed them into crates, and trucked them off to be slaughtered. Canada Geese Protection Colorado members and members of the public bore witness to this unnecessary act this morning at Garland Park.
DENVER _ Canada Geese Protection Colorado (CGPC) anticipates that Denver Parks and Recreation and its contractor, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Division, will, at any moment, begin the unethical round up and slaughter of up to 4,000 resident Canada geese in Colorado, process them, feed them to those suffering food insecurity, and, in doing so, fail to heed the voice of citizens and experts calling for an end to this unnecessary and cruel injustice to humans and animals alike.
