BERLIN — The city will be working with U.S. Fish & Wildlife and N.H. Fish & Game to address the overpopulation of geese in the city, which one local farmer said has become so bad it is causing significant damage to his crops and poses a health hazard in local parks.

City council members on Monday initially voted to hire a contractor to cull the geese in the city after hearing complaints from Landry Farm proprietor Dan Landry, who brought the matter before the council.

Get rid of them ASAP. The last thing Berlin needs as the economic pictue finally brightens. And as tourism ramps up, the last thing needed is these disgusting birds fowling the whole city.
