Service will mourn euthanized geese

BEND, OR The service will be held Thursday evening at the Galveston Bridge in Bend's Drake Park.

Foster Fell, who had urged the Parks & Recreation District not to kill the geese, says he hopes the event will help people console each other.

Growing numbers of geese have caused problems for years. Last year, the district spent $22,000 on cleaning up damage they caused.

District Board Chairman Scott Wallace says it is unfortunate the parks can't support all the geese.
