I was incredulous when I read that some people are against the removing of goose eggs as a population-control method (Saving eggs a wild goose chase, May 29).

These people have started a petition to stop the efforts to remove eggs, and would rather see signage posted on roadways to encourage motorists to slow down so the geese can cross the roads safely.

Traffic on Kenaston Boulevard moves too slowly at the best of times; slowing traffic even further will result in more accidents and driver frustration. Many geese will die in these traffic accidents -- surely a less-humane way of cutting down the population.

I hope sanity prevails and the practice of removing the eggs is allowed to continue.
