NEW YORK New York City plans to capture pesky geese that threaten planes departing area airports and send them to Pennsylvania to be cooked for meals for the poor, city officials said on Thursday.

The plan is aimed at avoiding incidents like the forced landing of a U.S. Airways plane in the Hudson River in January 2009 after a flock of errant geese were caught in the engine during takeoff from LaGuardia Airport.

Mass culls to clear the geese from the area were authorized after the National Transportation Safety Board positively identified the remains of Canada geese in the engine of the aircraft.

I can just imagine the headlines if it had been a Spotted Owl that had been sushied through the jet engine.

Didn't someone want to try to do this same thing with deer meat...only to have it turn into a big contoversy? I thought I read that awhile back anyway.

Wonder if PETA will have issues with this?

I thought they were greasy, livery and tough?
