Parks and Rec Keep Geese Away

Carrollton Ga -- Carrollton Parks and Rec came up with a clever plan to keep geese from flocking to the Lakeshore Ball Fields and leaving their droppings.

They have planted coyote decoys to deter the fowl from the fields.

While park officials say the fake coyotes have been working in regards to the geese, they said the life like decoys have also startled some park patrons.  The city has heard reports of animal control being notified, officers walking up holding their side arms and even park crew members have been startled by them while mowing.
