Sentenced to transportation

Conservation trailer full of Canada Geese
I happened to be walking through High Park today in time to see the majority of the geese -- those without goslings or the gumption to fly away when herded [1] -- be herded into a goose-transportation trailer.  I'm told they're going to wind up at a site near Kingston, after transfer to a truck suitable for highway travel.

If we cannot have enough eagles to keep their numbers in check, someone has to do something, and this seems like a humane response.

[1] there was only one.  These are very tame geese for ostensibly wild birds.
