Gaston County leaders kill 144 geese

GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Gaston County leaders admit to killing 144 Canada geese.

Parks and Recreation Director Cathy Hart said the flock had become a nuisance.

Hart told WBTV Gaston County officials had received numerous complaints about the waste the geese generate.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service was hired to humanely euthanize the birds, according to Hart.
