However, someone may have taken their frustrations to the extreme in New Rochelle.
According to cops and animal rescue workers, a call came in from the Imperial Yacht Club on Davenport Avenue last Friday. A call about a Canada goose who police say was beaten so badly that the bones in her leg were broken and punctured through her skin.
The doctors who gave the goose the x-rays tells Eyewitness News the injuries were consistent with the goose bring struck by a broad object.
The folks at the Yacht Club knew nothing, but Kate Murphy took the anonymous call about the goose, and then tried to save it.
I know many people think Canada geese are a nuisance, it does not make it alright to abuse an animal and leave it to die," says Murphy.
There are other ways to get rid of geese ? you can use gadgets like one called "The Goosinator", or you can scare them off the old fashioned way. In Eastchester, they use a Border Collie to scare them away.
Wildlife experts will tell you that many of the communities only contribute to the goose population by getting rid of their natural predators ? coyotes, but there has also been a lot of development in their natural habitats.
Animal experts say to not go to extremes such as this, because you could face a fine. In this case, the Department of Environmental Conservation and the SPCA are now investigating.
