I don't see how getting rid of these pests is such an issue. Just because of their looks? If they were rats or other vermin they would have been eradicated a long time ago. Just make the areas around the lagoon a giant dog park and the geese will soon disappear. As an alternative, hold cook outs with goose on the menu, they are delicious.
