    Does anyone have any or know of any documented info on how geese can destroy water quality in ponds or cause disease to cattle and horses.

    There are a lot of small farm ponds that hold geese but the owners do not want hunting around their animals. I was hoping to find info to show I can help thier animals by killing the geese.

    Newspaper articles etc. would be great

    Do a google search for MN as well. We just talked about several lakes that have been or were closed to due that problem in the past in one of my classes. Has to do with phosphorus and bacteria buildup from the feces.
