The City of Alpena will be conducting a second and final goose hunt of the season this Friday.

The city is trying to control the goose population to help eliminate some of the droppings they leave behind at public places.

Hunting areas will be limited to Mich-e-ke-wis Park and the County Fairgrounds, from daylight until noon.

During this time, the boat ramp at the end of 11th Avenue, the lakeshore area of Mich-e-ke-wis Park, the bi-path behind the water treatment plant, and the riverfront at the fairgrounds will be closed to the public.

In addition, a dog handler and his dog will employ harassment techniques during the hunt, to move geese out of local parks, the Alpena High School athletic fields, and certain other areas where goose droppings have caused problems.  Additional harassment techniques will be conducted on Cow Island at the owners’ request.

Questions about the hunt should be directed to city building official Don Gilmet by calling 354-1761.
