Judges stop goose killing plans


This video says about itself:

Base-jumping barnacle goose – Life Story: Episode 1 Preview – BBC One

Within the first few hours after hatching a Barnacle gosling must make a giant leap from it’s clifftop nest falling over 400ft in order to reach the ground below.

Translated from BirdLife in the Netherlands:

For the time being, no shooting of geese

Thursday, January 15th, 2015 12:12

In the Province of Overijssel temporarily greylag geese, white-fronted geese and barnacle geese are not allowed to be shot. The court in Zwolle today in an urgent procedure decided that the exemption which the province had issued previously should be suspended. BirdLife in the Netherlands is pleased with the ruling. This allows the wintering geese in Overijssel in the short term to be protected from large-scale shooting.
