“They misstated the evidence,” (Stacy)Taeuber says. “They used the E. coli thing as a scare tactic. There is no record of anyone ever getting E. coli from a goose. To imply a direct threat of that disease is disingenuous at best. I said, “If I’m wrong, explain it to me, but they never did.”

The Board of Park Commissioners has the final say on the matter. Though Clear supports killing the geese, he does take issue with Isthmus reporting on it. “It’s something I believe should be kept relatively quiet,” he says. “Crowds of humans wouldn’t be conducive to the work the Parks Department needs to do.”

  1. There must be some misunderstanding here. Escherichia Coli (E. Coli) are normal bacteria which live almost everywhere, and especially in the intestines of animals, including people. If you don’t have E. Coli in your intestines, you probably have diarrhea. The dangerous version of E. Coli is EHEC, Entero Hemorrhagic Escherichia Coli, which is quite rare. EHEC and ordinary E. Coli are NOT the same.
