    Love the views of the scioto mile, but the amount of goose poop on the trail every day is off the charts. They are in some serious need of deterrent down there.

    I saw a sidewalk cleaner making the rounds yesterday.

    It’s always been an issue. Didn’t show up as much in the past because the bike trail was black asphalt.

    Didn’t OSU do some firework blasting to get rid of them in the river development by Lane? That would be funny.

    Geese were always a problem at the Genoa Park amphitheater. They love easy access to water and bluegrass lawns. The casino hired a company that had a couple of border collies – they came out to the property at random times to harass the geese. I’ll bet the dogs love that job!

    I shot a question about it to the parks management.

    They strongly discourage feeding birds in parks for these reasons. It’s also a water-quality issue.

    I’d volunteer our English Setter for that duty.

    ^The dogs seemed really happy and the geese were just annoyed and went somewhere else.

    I’ve been running/ridding these trails for a long time – this is definitely worst I have ever seen, can’t speak for the cosi area historically though – but it has been really bad in the past week

    Ages ago, I worked at The Limited’s HQ, and I seem to recall a building-wide email that went out every once in awhile for employees to not be alarmed at the sounds of shotguns outside because they were just scaring away the geese.

    Sounds like the geese aren’t really leaving the region… just being scared from one area to another and back again. :P

    Yeah sadly the geese are ruining what should be a gem. They have overpopulated and need to be culled, but they are theoretically “migratory” birds and are 100% protected by law from being killed. I hope since they no longer migrate that this could be changed, but I doubt it will be quick enough to help here.

    About a week before the park opened I saw a company called Goose Buster out with a dog and two DJI Phantom drones trying to get the geese to leave. Hopefully they will be coming back on a regular basis to keep things under control.

    In the past I’ve also noticed the paths around the North Bank get hit pretty hard by the geese.

    The COSI steps were completely lit up tonight for tests. Snapped some shots. More impressive than I had expected.
