BACKGROUND | SOURCE FRIENDS OF ANIMALS

The efforts of Friends of Animals and other local groups and residents have led the Mamaroneck Board of Trustees to back off from their plans to slaughter Canada Geese this summer, and from their signed contract with the USDA, as the article below details.

Please contact each member of the Mamaroneck Board of Trustees below and urge them to commit to habitat/landscape modification as outlined in Friends of Animals’ Canada Goose Habitat Modification Manual in addition to instituting a formal clean-up plan for goose droppings in parks.

Be sure to thank Trustee Illissa Miller for speaking out against the kill contract with the USDA at last night’s meeting, and for making a motion to cancel the wrong-headed contract.

Let’s make sure killing is off the table for good in Mamaroneck and that a long-overdue attitude of tolerance and respect for geese and other wildlife begin to take root.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Trustees Miller, Potok, Bermudez-Hallstrom, Deputy Mayor Santoro, and Mayor Rosenblum:

Thank you for your compassionate decision to discontinue plans to slaughter geese in Mamaroneck.  This decision not only establishes a threshold for respecting wildlife, but it also says that Mamaroneck is willing to listen to concerned citizens, groups, and potential tourists.

Please commit to habitat/landscape modification as outlined in Friends of Animals’ Canada Goose Habitat Modification Manual in addition to instituting a formal clean-up plan for goose droppings in parks.

Thank you for your attention to the previous appeal and for committing to responsible habitat coexistence.
