People need to stay in doors if they hate nature. Don’t ruin it for the rest of us!

I would think that if anyone was to euthanize any federally regulated wildlife and or give permission to do so it would have to be the federal DNR. especially since it is a federally regulated animal. Waterfowl are highly protected by the DNR and I don’t know where the USDA fits into the scenario, kind of strange all around.

How is this “private” and how was the USDA brought into it. Seems to me that if a government body is going to intitate a culling, it should not be at the direction of just one property owner, especially given that Larchmont Gardens is an HOA, is it not?
