Geese in New York rounded up to be euthanized in hopes of cutting down strikes with passenger jets - NYPOST.com - Federal officials rounded up about 700 of the birds from the area to be euthanized in hopes of cutting down on the strikes with passenger jets that have forced emergency landings from JFK and La Guardia Airports.The action also ended a two-year dispute between the US Department of Agriculture and the National Parks Service over removing the birds. The meat from the geese will be given to food pantries, Bannerman said. The effort should rid the region of the birds, she said. La Guardia and JFK saw increases in bird strikes of 28 percent and 53 percent between 2009 and 2011. Both federal agencies welcomed yesterday’s bird removal.
