HAMPTON, Va. — A small wildlife business is helping Hampton University fight a 40-year battle with a certain nuisance: Canada Geese.
The business, Flyaway Geese, uses working Border Collies to "humanely convince" geese to leave the college campus.
According to Flyaway Geese, before they were contracted by the university three years ago, the geese had taken over the campus. The geese were allegedly attacking students, destroying landscaping, and covering the ground in feces.
"Before Flyaway Geese was contracted three years ago, the geese had won this battle over and over again, taking over the sidewalks; now very seldomly does the campus see Canada Geese at all," the company said.
Now, without the feces and goose attacks, Hampton University has returned to a peaceful place for students to learn.
