I was in Monroe Michigan one year during the tame Canada goose hunt. There were blinds near every body of water in the city. I saw dead geese dropping onto the Interstate!
The local gubmint said it did the citizens more good than anything else but they weren't about to stop it.
"They bought me a box of tin soldiers, I threw all the Generals away, I smashed up the Sergeants and Majors, Now I play with my Privates all day."
