Beware Heather Farm's Geese!

Heather Farm Park is getting tough, setting up two rubber coyote dummies to scare the geese away from this particular lawn. The geese have completely taken over both waterways in the park, which isn't a problem in the natural-habitat setting north of these photos. But the unnatural cement pond and surrounding lawns are completely covered in goose shit year-round. Here's hoping these stalking predator-like statuettes will offer some relief to clean-up crews and Frisbee throwers.
