BEST ECO-TERRORIST: Canada Geese
No one died, so we can joke, yeah? A formation of kamikaze geese took down US Airways Flight 1549 in January by flying into the engines. No people died, but citing some “clear and present threat” (based, no doubt, on faulty intelligence), the city declared war on airport birds. Following front-page advice from The New York Post, the city just cold started shooting: Bloomberg (the news source, not the mayor) reports that “airport supervisors [are being] certified as shotgun instructors to increase the ability to shoot geese when needed.” To which we, and the geese, wonder: why don’t you stop flying your planes into them instead, jerks? Planes have hit geese more than 75 times in the last decade.
