Lynnfield Little League cries fowl over goose droppings

Lynnfield Little League‘s president, Michael Bolger, is not ready to declare a public health emergency, but he would like something done about the resident Canada geese at Newhall Park.

“I have yet to find anybody in the universe of Little League who has had a documented health issue with goose poop,” said Bolger, who noted that the field is near Suntaug Lake, an attraction to the birds. “However, we’re extremely overpopulated with geese on our field.”
