Canada Geese for NYC Homeless: Yes

This is such an obviously-good idea that I’m not sure why it’s even news.

Activist says feeding homeless with geese ‘ethical’

A Virginia-based locavore activist says New York City is doing the “ethical thing” by sending its culled Canada Geese to a slaughterhouse to feed the homeless.

Jackson Landers, a self-professed conservationist who hunts for his own food, told CTV’s Canada AM on Friday that the city’s decision to capture the birds and send them to food banks in Pennsylvania “gives some sort of meaning to (their) deaths.”

Hmm, I wonder if migratory birds count as “local”?
