Nancy Solomon of member station WBGO in Newark, N.J. reports on how area residents are trying to control the surging population of Canadian geese. The geese used to winter in the lower 48 states and return to Canada to nest each spring. But now, some 3.6 million stay in the U.S. year round. Now the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife is considering allowing states to kill nearly a million Canada geese.
