FoSP volunteers this evening witnessed three children aged 9 – 11 years trying to kick and ‘play football’ with goslings in the park. They were challenged and justified their action by saying that one of the geese tried to attack them!
They ran off but returned to carry on. Detailed descriptions of the kids have been sent to the authorities. We (FoSP) will always take appropriate action – sadly we have been here before and we will not allow a return to the bad old days.
Anyone seeing wildlife being mistreated can report it to the police on 101 or to the Neighbourhood Response Team on (daytime) 01302 385153 (after 7pm) 01302 341628.
