Drugged geese drown, dragging Florida homeowners association into hot water

Ten geese have drowned in a South Florida lake after a homeowners association’s attempt to trap, put them to sleep and euthanize them went horribly wrong.

The SilverLakes Homeowners Association in Miramar hired a company, Pest Wildlife Pro, to remove 25 geese because some residents found them to be noisy pooping machines, while others saw them as majestic.

The owner of the business fed the goose bread with sedatives, but a loud car scared the drugged birds away and they flew away.

Ten fell into the lake and drowned, while he found the other 15 and euthanized them offsite.

City officials blamed the association, sending officers a letter saying it now faces a likely fine.
