CHEROKEE, Iowa (AP) – Officials in the northwest Iowa city of Cherokee are planning a goose roundup to reduce the population of the birds near the city’s airport.

The city will work with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources on the roundup June 26th at Koser Spring Lake Park. The park is adjacent to the Cherokee Regional Airport.

City workers will erect and bait a trap to confine the geese.

The DNR will move goslings to another wildlife area while the adult geese will be killed and processed, with the meat given to a food bank.

The city will close the park the morning of June 26 and re-open it after the round up.
