I just love all the geese that fly around the woods in the neighborhood where my home is. I love their colors. I love the way they sound, too. I have never had the luck to live near them before. But I learned that they can also become a pest problem, as well. My neighbors and I discussed that I might need to get Canada geese control in NJ after the geese began attacking me at random times.
I do not want to hurt animals. And I never will. It is scary, though, to walk outside your home on a Saturday morning in your robe and slippers, and the geese come at you out of nowhere. I have to go outside each morning to get my newspaper delivery, and out of the 5 days I went out to get it last week, the birds came after me four times.
I decided to try to be sneaky and look out the window before I went outside. I would wait until I thought they were busy, and then I would rush outside. Of course, I made sure to be very quite so that I would not alert them. That worked two times. The other two times, they saw me and came after me immediately. Both times, I raced back inside again. This was not good for them or me.
The majority of these birds leave people alone. But in random situations, they become very territorial. I understand that fully. To them, I was on their property, not the other way around. They wanted me gone and did what they could to try to protect their territory. I called a place that could do something about it. They promised that they are very gentle and only relocated the birds. They did that for me and I can now go outside in peace.
