— The City of Janesville is using several methods to keep the goose population under control.

The most popular is egg oiling, according to Janesville Parks Director Tom Presny. He says a string fencing program and "Dogs in the Park" project are also effective.


Recent flooding in the city apparently had an unexpected affect. Presny says the goose population dropped, but it was only temporary.


The current goose population in Janesville is estimated at 2,000. Presny says he would like to see it down around 500.


The city is in its 6th year of their current goose control program.
