Control birds so lake can stay open

Reading the Wednesday article, “Canada geese close lake at Deception Pass State Park,” about closing Cranberry Lake to recreation because of the fecal waste of Canada geese is very frustrating for vacationers, especially in the wake of the past high temperatures of the past few weeks.

Yes, they are beautiful birds, but too much of a good thing is not necessarily a good thing. I presume that different things have been tried to deter the waterfowl from taking their extended stay. I’d like to suggest opening an early hunting season, with no limit. Until the menaces are finally looking for a more desirable area. With an open, organized hunting season, there would be an opportunity to donate to the food banks.
