200 Canada geese spared on Lake Ronkonkoma

When Humane Long Island heard that Suffolk County was considering killing 200 Canada geese—the entire population on Lake Ronkonkoma, Humane Long Island president John Di Leonardo presented to the Lake Ronkonkoma Advisory Board about humane geese management plans just moments after the DEC and USDA proposed rounding up and gassing mother geese and their babies. County Executive Steve Bellone decided to pursue humane egg oiling—one of our suggestions—rather than the proposed massacre.
