I heard Nassau County wants to use the dead goose meat in their food pantries. Well that did it for me..now I am total vegetarian and will do everything I can to not allow this inhumane law to pass.

Town of North Hempstead should be ashamed of themselves. Hire the Dog like everyone else To chase them elsewhere. You can't just kill an animal because it annoys you. Look up other solutions.
