This month the Department of Wildlife is rounding up hundreds of Canada geese to relocate them to different parts of the state.
The department conducted a goose roundup at Idlewild Park Thursday morning.
NDOW says the roundup is necessary to prevent the birds from running into planes and polluting golf courses with their feces.
"We go to the golf courses and we go to the parks, anywhere people want us to come get them the objective is to get them out of here. The airports one of the ones that originally started this because if there was any chance of a bird strike for a jet that would be disastrous," says Rodney Johnson.
The birds are captured using traps that don't hurt them - and then transported to where they can be released humanely.
NDOW expects to capture 400 to 600 birds during the next several weeks.
