Geese droppings ruin beach for everyone
It’s only late March and geese droppings are, again, ruining the Ft. Phoenix Beach area. Last summer, many sunbathers could not enjoy themselves and didn’t return.
It’s outrageous that I have to look at dirty birds instead of bikinis. What happened to the right to the pursuit of happiness?! The beach is for people, not animals, altho an occasional fox is scenic. The town should be systematic about driving away the birds, not just one man, one day, with a horn.
