    I like them geese. Glad to hear someone takes care of them. I saw traffic stopped on Inner Perimeter Road one day letting a family cross. I think that this is something a lot of locals would like to get behind. Thank you for taking care of this wild life area.

    I watched them on a daily bases as they where in the area. It’s so sad that someone would run over them. I hope they find out who did it and lock them up because that was so wrong.

    This really breaks my heart. I really loved seeing them every time I go to Publix. Where has humanity gone???? They were not harming anyone. Poor babies.

    Unfortunately, animals and even people get hit crossing roads…doesn’t mean it was intentional. I’ve hit dogs, cats, opossums, and an armadillo, none of which could have been avoided. I love animals as much as the next person, but accidents happen. That said, hopefully everyone will be more aware of the geese, especially along Perimeter; there’s still a few of them out there! Stay aware!

      P.S. if it WAS intentional, I agree, hope they prosecute them as harshly as possible!
