Some residents living near a nature park in Commerce Township are getting fed up with the nature living there.
Specifically the Canada Geese that are leaving droppings along the lakeshore and sidewalks near the Robert H Long Nature Park. Residents are ready to take action and their plans are leading to a bird battle in the community.
"Everyplace you look there's geese," said Milton Erlich, whose condos backs up against the nature park. He says the geese must go.
There is no doubt that the droppings are unwanted, but some activists have been raising awareness calling the potential goose round up inhumane.
Neighbors like Beatrice Leslie welcome the feathery friends and don't see the problem. "No I don't really, I read that letter they sent out and it was really heart wrenching," she said. "People want the geese transferred to other places, and you know I feel as though it's not time to do that, because they are living here with their babies."
