When this story crops up every year:

A nine-page report put together by a variety of national, state and city agencies shows that officials hope to reduce the number of Canada geese in New York to 85,000 from 250,000.

That means that roughly 170,000 geese — two-thirds of the population — will be killed.

Would the authorities gas these horrid birds (that produce a seemingly infinite quantity of horrid shit) in these numbers if they were instead named the "United States Goose"?
