Who let the dogs out? The U.S. Park Service, potentially.
The federal agency may soon employ dogs – border collies, to be specific – to chase off and ultimately reduce the Canada goose population at popular Washington, D.C., landmarks, according to Reuters. It’s not that Canadian geese are unpatriotic per se (though the irony is rich); the birds drop up to three pounds of feces each per day, presenting undeniable problems. The goose poop is reportedly damaging the pumps and filters in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and generally fowling up the Washington Monument grounds in the nation’s capital.
