Drugged geese drown, knock down Florida Homeowners’ Association in hot water
MIRAMAR, Florida – Ten geese have drowned in a South Florida lake after a homeowner’s association attempt to trap, put them to sleep and euthanize them went horribly wrong.
The SilverLakes Owners Association in Miramar hired a company, Pest Wildlife Pro, to remove 25 geese because some residents viewed them as loud poo machines, although others viewed them as majestic.
The owner of the business fed the bread geese with sedatives, but a loud car scared the drugged birds and they flew away.
Ten fell into the lake and drowned, while he found the other 15 and euthanized them off the site.
City officials blame the association, sending officers a letter saying it now faces a likely fine.
