    I agree the meat should be put to good use but its not as simple as just donating them to food banks. Most food banks do not have the capacity to store the meat, they must ensure its safe to eat and most of their clients would not know what to do with the meat in any event or not even want it. If you have been to a food bank you will see that clients actually leave food behind that does not suit them or give it away to other clients.

    At least donate to zoo’s. But they’ll bury them

    Why would they do something smart with them, that does not make sense. They will pay a high priced vet thousands to euthanize them, then thousands to bury them, but a few 22 rounds and a sharp knife would take care of them quite quickly and at a minimal cost.

    Good to hear that the ministry was successful with the capture and have to agree the meat should be put to use.

    It's not as simple as all that. They would first have to be slaughtered, then inspected to be safe for human consumption etc. If they are tainted and not fit for human consumption the place where they were slaughtered would have to shut down and sanitized.... You're dammed if you do and dammed if you don't....

    But it is nice to see that the MNR responded to it in a timely matter and the animals were trapped like they said they would do....

    I’ve been saying this for years about nuisance geese in parks/golf course’s etc. Why not stock food banks…stupid

    I’m sure the government could come up with some funds$ for butchering, testing etc,

    makes sense that the government do something completely moronic and waste thousands and possibly hundreds of thousands

    A neighbor tried to give garden produce like eggplant and zucchini to a food bank. The manager of the food bank said they'd tried to provide garden products (along with a recipe) and the patrons wouldn't take it. Basically if it isn't prepackaged or in a can they didn't want it. Supports what you said.
