Be kind to animals

Letter published, NY Daily News

Brooklyn: To the people of North Hempstead and elsewhere who regard Canada geese as invasive, disease-carrying pests: They’re migratory birds native to North America listed for protection under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 because of their near-extinction from overhunting.

No public health agency has ever declared Canada geese a direct threat to human health. We’re prepared to tolerate teachers carrying firearms in schools and children wearing bulletproof vests, yet we have no will to accommodate these benign animals who tolerate us.

Let’s show our children how we can live with geese, not with guns.
