Geese Racing in Hoboken!

Hoboken Geese are fun to watch

If you ever want to get a mini-escape from real life in Hoboken – head over to the waterfront. Because watching geese and other creatures just swim around can be quite relaxing if you allow yourself to enjoy it.

I was mesmerized watching this clan of geese for almost an hour recently – and they were just swimming near the Sovereign Building uptown – when I noticed that they had this peculiar arrangement.

It dawned upon me that they weren’t just milling in the river – but actually participating in organized sporting events! See photo below for proof!

Oh nos! Geese poop all over our golf courses, ponds, playgrounds and beaches! However will humanity save the day and prove that they’re the #1 bestest, most special and entitled species? 🙄

Against the law to kill a goose in Hoboken? Just send them to the other side of the river.

Smoked Goose …For That Next Special Occasion yum yum.

Yes, they’re cute, AND their corpses leave behind a number of especially fun diseases and germs!

CUTE, these things are walking and flying shit machines and have ruined more parks and fields than any dogs. There are places where you can’t walk with the sound of goose shit crunching under your feet. They have laid claim to fast food parking lots and have become very good moochers and if you throw them a morsel they will knock on your car or honk at you. Cute my ass canadian flying rats is more like it.

when you bought your condo in Maxwell Place and the other overpriced condos just north of there, you may THINK you also got a deed to the waterfront, but in reality, you didn’t. It’s not the property of Maxwell Place and it’s entitled residents, the waterfront belongs to EVERYONE, and one more fact…the geese were there WAYYYYYY before you yuppies moved in.

Yuppie– me? living in maxwell place? you couldn’t be any further off base. My title says it all ” escaped 68″ duh!
Regardless these shit machines and there droppings are a problem all over the northeast. Hoboken problem is small in comparison with other areas parks, small ponds , golf courses and any place where there is a little grass or water and not too long ago didn’t they cause a plane to crash land in the hudson.
But on the bright side I recently read where they are being used to feed the needy in ‘I think, in western Pa. also a a whole new business has sprung up , the geese police,they have dogs chase the geese off their patrol area.

I hate them, filthy disgusting animals that are aggressive and poop all over the place.

They just come to the US to have anchor babies. They should go back to their own country, CANADA!
