Geese Force W. Virginia School To Divert Activities

BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) – Almost like a scene from the movie “The Birds,” a West Virginia school is dealing with some fowl problems.

So many geese are converging around Woodrow Wilson High School in Beckley that Principal Ron Cantley says after-school activities have been diverted. Even walking outside without tracking bird poop in the building is a challenge.

Cantley told WVVA-TV that he is working with the Division of Natural Resources to try to get rid of 100-plus birds roams the grounds. He says part of the problem is that people feed the birds and they’ve lost their fear of humans.

A plan to get rid of the geese includes withholding food and harassing the birds so they will regain their fear and hopefully move on.
