The problem with Canada geese fouling the town beach appears to have been solved, at least for now.
After the U.S. Department of Agriculture arranged to have a crop of geese that infiltrated the Oakland town beach euthanized, town officials have looked for a more humane way of keeping the geese and their droppings away from families seeking a relaxing summer afternoon. A “predatory decoy,” in the form of a plastic fox, was recently placed on the beach in the hope of scaring the geese away. Staff photo by Jesse Scardina
