Compared to the Ukrainian cobra chicken, the Canadian cobra chickens can have all the damn bread they want.

The only positive thing I can say about the Canadian goose:
Their poop is rather good fertilizer. I scoop it up from a recreational soccer field which they have apparently designated as a landmark goosefarkery crapping target. I'm not paid to do this but hey free fertilizer

To you they are causing problems, to them they are merely experiencing the full actualization of their evolutionary path. How a species evolves into being a prolific shiat machine is probably not that interesting of a thing to study, so I guess we will never know.

Yes. Yes i do. They chase after the ducks. They will squawk constantly at the pelicans but won't go after them. Pelicans are bigger and ignore them. They shiat all over my shoreline. If i don't do something to get rid of them, 5 to 10 feet out from shore will be a mass of green turds, which the dogs think are tasty treats. Can't pick them up like i do with dog poop. Too many; Too small. I have to rake the damn grass.

So, when they decide sitting on my shore is fine and dandy, i fire off a bottle rocket in their general direction and up. The bottle rockets can't reach them, but they squawk at me, jump in the water and swim away.

Farking flying water rats. When they flew in while there was still ice on the lake, it was too dark to see 1000 feet across my bay at night. But we could hear the coyotes barking along with geese squeals. The muskrat on that side does at time sneak up on them from under the water, too. Much splashing and squawking random nights when im sitting and fishing.

Where I live, we just leave them alone.  They don't really bother anyone and we co-exist quite peaceably.

Ya must be at The Beaches or Christie Pits. They know the Wyrd Ways of the Gooses.

Meanwhile, some jogger on a trail in the Don Valley is running scared, and the subway riders are looking down at them and laughing.

Two ducks came to my back door yesterday. Quacked loudly enough that I heard them from upstairs on the other side of the house. I figured I'd give them some oats. They barely moved when I opened the door and stepped out towards them. We're a short distance from several ponds/lakes popular with water-fowl, and I guess they're already imprinted on people.

We can always tell which of the geese are nesting for the first time: the male lets the female pick some of the stupidest, most dangerous places to lay eggs and raise a gosling ever; like, no access to water, maybe on a  traffic median or curb with a daily chance of getting squashed, stuff like that.

Personally I think they should be culled in massive numbers.
They're not endangered in the least and its getting to the point you can't go to a beach or a park witout having your shoes turned a nasty green from all their shiat.
Problem is lots of them like to nest in cities where they don't really have any predators and the citiots are terrified of them so they have free reign.
If you try to get rid of them all the lunatics loose their shiat saying "We're encroaching on THIER HOMES!!" meanwhile the same citiot who has never travelled past Barrie, Ont. doesn't realize 97% of Ontario is untouched wilderness.

We have Canada geese here in Fairbanks as well but it's the sandhill cranes that are the loudest bastards. I don't even need to set my alarm clock anymore.

For any fellow-farkers who might be interested in a historical account of what some would consider to be a misguided effort at conservation of the Canada Goose, you might want to read the story of Jack Miner.

...the issue is not the migrating geese, but rather the "resident geese" that have, in some cases, taken up residence in urban areas year-round.

I guess shooting them in urban areas would be difficult.  Farmers field?  No problem, usually the farmer tells you to get after it.  Unfortunately they are not really all that tasty.

However, culling can be controversial and some wildlife experts argue it is ineffective in the long term.
Pierce said adjusting areas so they seem less attractive to geese in what is called habitat modification can also help.  "This can be quite simple, just involving things such as providing shrubbery or low vegetation around water edges, where predators could in theory be in hiding and this would make that area less safe for them," she said.


How about culling AND planting some shrubbery?

With the ongoing labour shortages, it's kinda hard to find a good shrubber.

Canada Geese would be a good gang name. The people who weren't familiar would be like, "WTF, let's stay away from those weird dudes." and the people who were familar would be like, "Let's stay away from those violent dudes."
