To refresh your memory:

https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pdf/avianflu...ansmission.pdf

Cook that goose. According to epidemiological info compiled by WHO, CDC, and others about H5N1, using normal safe handling protocols for poultry/waterfowl and cooking meat or eggs thoroughly eliminates transmission risk. This guidance isn't exactly new or surprising...it was developed at least 10 years ago.

According to your link: "The USDA says goose meat is safe for human consumption." But apparently the USDA never tried to eat one of these 'foul' creatures! Tough, bloody, gamy are the words that come to my mind. Perhaps it was the chef or perhaps I was not coming off a starvation diet? If we fed our illegal immigrants Canadian Geese they would all go home!

I have been told that zoos won't take goose meat in general because they don't know where it's been.

I am sorry. The title of this thread is Nature. Sometimes nature gets out of control and we have to check the overpopulation. Thirty miles south of my location it is not uncommon to see huge flocks (in the thousands) of both Canadian Geese but also Snow Geese. This is also in an area with a airport. I could easily see our State or local government wanting to control the size of these massive flocks. Even nature lovers like to travel by plane to see nature and they want to do so safely.

I discovered many lies about geese in working against round ups.

Uummm. Okay, I know this sounds really anal retentive but as a Canadian I find this so annoying because so many Americans get it wrong, so just for the record they are not called Canadian Geese and they are not illegals. They are called Canada Geese and they are native to ALL of North America. The title says the correct name. I think that to refer to them as illegal immigrants even as a joke is in poor taste and inappropriate.

Canada geese are a particular species of the Branta genus of geese (Branta Canadensis) that are native to arctic and temperate regions of all of North America, as well as Siberia and some northern European countries. They do not belong to Canada because of their name, they belong to the world's northern hemisphere (that includes all of USA) and they migrate back and forth throughout the northern hemisphere. They have no borders. Just like Snow Geese. Canada geese have also been introduced and become naturalized to the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands.

On the other hand, a Canadian goose is any goose of any goosey species and type that originated from anywhere in the world that is the domesticated livestock property owned, fed, cared for, housed and confined in Canada by a real Canadian farmer residing in Canada. A real Canadian goose never leaves Canada and it isn't a nuisance to anyone.

The only Canadian Goose is one that happens to live in or migrates from Canada. Now it is possible to have a Canada goose that happens to be Canadian.
