Justice For Slaughtered Greylag Geese

Target: George Eustice, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the United Kingdom

Goal: Stop the killing of geese on football fields in favor of more humane removal options.

England’s Football Association shot and killed roughly 60 greylag geese to protect their fields from the birds’ excessive excrement. Goose droppings not only pose dangerous slipping hazards, but contain massive amounts of bacteria and parasites that spread easily. However, while these arguments are technically true, they were still no excuse to slaughter these birds, especially after a pledge to protect biodiversity.

This is just another example of resorting to violence and wildlife killings much too quickly despite a multitude of more humane options for handling the problems they pose. The association claims to have tried methods such as trapping and scaring, but they resorted to a cull much too quickly. Invasive or not, these geese were still living creatures who did not deserve such a brutal end.

There is no excuse for using violence instead of more humane methods to remove bothersome species. Sign this petition to revoke all licenses for killing wild geese.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Eustice,

Roughly 60 greylag geese were brutally killed by the Football Association in a supposedly “last resort” effort to protect football fields. They cited the excessive waste left by the birds as a slipping hazard and a bacterial nightmare, and geese are generally considered invasive.

Invasive or not, however, the association resorted to a cull much too quickly. This is not the first time the UK has resorted to culls rather than giving more humane removal methods a second chance. These were beautiful living creatures who had their lives cruelly taken for the sake of human safety. Many licenses for shooting these creatures were given out since 2018, and you must revoke them. Killing wildlife flies in the face of the UK’s current attempts to restore biodiversity, and it must not continue.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The only invasive and bothersome species is the humans. Let’s shoot them!!!

  2. Why do people or so called people always have to go the killing route instead of another way to get them off of the field and let them live. What is wrong with people always kill instead of something else

  3. NOW THEIR BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS EVIL PEOPLE==ANOTHER PLAGUE BY ANY OTHER NAME.

  4. OMG, WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH HUMANS WHEN THEY HAVE NO COMPASSION, NO HEART, SOUL, HUMANITY OR RESPECT FOR LIFE BE IT HUMAN OR ANIMALS? THAT IS THE ONLY REASON THAT THEY WOULD DO THESE HORRIFIC AND VILE THINGS TO ANIMALS AND OTHER HUMANS?

    THIS INSANITY MUST STOP AND WE MUST ALL TAKE ACTION TO MAKE SURE IT DOES STOP NOW! THE WORLD IS WATCHING AND WE ARE MORE THAN JUST DISGUSTED. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO STOP THIS HUMANELY AND IT SHOULD HAVE BE USED. THAT IS WHY GOD GAVE US BRAIN AND WE NEED TO USE THEM FOR GOOD NOT EVIL!

    There is no excuse for this ugly act! They could have found a better solution to this problem than killing them. This is inexcusable.

    The lowlife animal torturing murdering bastards who deliberately murdered the precious and helpless Greylag Geese on Football fields must be brought to Justice and jailed for the deliberate torture, suffering and an agonising death these monsters from hell committed against such precious and innocent Geese.

    The human species never ceases to disgust and sicken me with the level of depravity they can sink too, when the innocent and precious animals are involved. These murdering monsters definately had more humane solutions to this problem instead of murdering the precious and helpless Geese. Absolutely sickening and unforgivable. This is sadism and evilness at its worst.
    All these animal murdering monsters were thinking about was the cost not the lives of such precious and innocent sentient beings.

    Burn in hell you vile and evil lowlife England’s Football Association Members for an eternity who agreed to this vile and evil sadism and evilness committed against such precious and innocent Greylag Geese.
