This is how they are baited and gassed:

The aggressive plan is a reaction to the crash of US Airways Flight 1549 last year.

Earlier this month, 400 geese in Prospect Park were euthanized and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been removing the birds from several locations near JFK and LaGuardia Airports.
