Vancouver park board pilots new goose dropping removal device

The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation has come up with a creative solution to clearing droppings from Canada geese.

The board is piloting what it calls a “goose pooper scooper” in David Lam Park in Yaletown.

In a post to social media, the pooper scooper appears to be a roller device pulled behind a small utility vehicle.

“Early results are promising, and we’re focusing efforts on areas most affected by goose droppings,” said the board.

It added that waste collection is just one of the ways that the board manages the loud, sharp-toothed, mess-making, “introduced” species.

On the city’s website, the board details its methods for population control and nest prevention.
