COTAGE GROVE. (AP) — A man who helped bring Canada geese back from the brink of extinction is now trying to tame their population.

Tom Keefe spent the late 1970s on a North Dakota farm, working with a captive flock as part of breeding and transplanting efforts that were a huge success. Too huge for some communities.

Three-and-a-half years later, Keefe’s job is to round them up and ship them off to be killed. His company, Cottage Grove-based Canada Goose Management Inc., spends its summers at parks, golf courses and other locales that have become havens for geese.

Kramer says he sympathizes with critics of removal efforts. He says he loves geese. He says his company is trying to maintain the population at a socially acceptable level.
