WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO: IN PINE PLAINS

Gregg Pulver, the supervisor of Pine Plains, consulted with Wildlife Watch regarding non-lethal methods of Canada goose dissuasion. Along with another member of the Pine Plains Board, we met at Stissing Lake beachfront. They had done an excellent job of fencing. We suggested rip-rap along the water’s edge up to the fence, and the supervisor quickly said, “Done!” In addition to the natural inclination of the supervisor, non-lethality is the option of choice.

Many thanks to the residents who’ve advocated for the geese, Connie Young and Collette Watz in particular. They were, no doubt, responsible for having Wildlife Watch brought in as a consultant. We also left them with our compiled report: Canada Geese: Effective Dissuasion Methods.
