SOUND OFF, Sept. 14

Published 10:03 pm Thursday, September 13, 2012

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

I’d like to comment on the Sound Off on mallards and geese and ducks at Jack’s Creek. While I do not hate animals, in fact I don’t even hunt, I love any stray, but the ducks and geese do become a problem with they could cause accidents either to keep from hitting a duck or from hitting the car stopping in front of me stopping for the duck. And I’m really surprised there aren’t more read-end collisions. Now, how do you keep them out of the road without harming them? I don’t know, maybe a small fence, some kind of barrier. But between a human life or an animal, the ducks are going to have to go because I’m not going to get a wreck or damage my car over a wild fowl.
