From the Goose's Mouth

The airplane that went down last week in the Hudson River has placed the lovely Canada goose in the national spotlight. And, as usual, it's not for good reasons. Usually it's about the species' skyrocketing population or their tendency to poop all over golf courses. Now, they're known for taking down airplanes, too.

While I can admit the Canada goose has some issues, I feel like it has been unfairly maligned in the press. That's why I was pleased to see that at least one news program gave it the chance to tell its side of the story. Please watch with an open mind.
