Fairfax On Guard Against Black Beaked Canadians

Fairfax Supervisor Gerald W. Hyland (D-Mount Vernon) didn't mean to overstate the threat to homeowners along Little Hunting Creek yesterday with his resolution asking the county to extend the ban on feeding ducks and Canada geese. Hyland's measure, introduced at the Board of Supervisors meeting, said residents near the Potomac tributary in southeast Fairfax have spent hours shoveling goose feces off their docks "or kept their children locked inside to protect them from the vicious black beaked bites of the meanest Canadian you may ever meet." Brett Kenney, Hyland's chief aide, confirmed that "geese" was the unfortunate omission.
