    Just as bad as Canada geese baked in the oven. Took 6 weeks to get the smell out of the rental we were living in 40+ years ago.

    Couldn't terminate lease to move into the new home, until we'd 'killed' the stink.

    Too silly back then to realise most of you GC on here only take the breast meat.
    Sold a boot load to an Island family a couple of doors down for $5 - about 15 birds total.
    Don't recall if they ever spoke to us again afterwards

    Scouser why did you go and shoot those pretty black swans? My grandsons like feeding those buggers at Western Springs and they won't be pleased when I tell on you. Ha ha ha ha

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    They are at plague proportions in some places and get more grass than a goose. If hunters don't shoot them they will go the same way as the poor gooses.

    Good on ya. They be gooses for sure. They used to be a valued gamebird managed by Fish and Game and then they got reduced to the same status as magpies and culled to all buggery.
