Sometimes the most powerful thing any of us can do for animals is to open our eyes and look at what is happening to them.
That is exactly what David Karopkin, and the members of the group he founded, Goosewatch NYC, have committed themselves to. When they receive alerts, whether by voicemail, text, or email, this army of caring folk head out to where they’ve been told the USDA is on hand in New York City’s parks to kill geese. Ever since a 400 goose massacre that followed the famed 2009 emergency landing in the Hudson River by a jet that been disabled after it collided with two geese, the USDA — which has a goose control contract with the City — has been on a mission to kill.
