Don't Mess With The Nan
By Kickntrue on 7/17/08
A couple weeks ago we told you about courses getting rid of their geese by capturing and transporting them. A Minnesota course has another solution. No- it's not that solution- but it is fun.

Fred Richards Golf Course in Edina, Minnesota, has employed Nan, a 13 year old border collie.
The city bought Nan for $1,500 when she was about a year old from a Minnesota breeder who had trained her for sheep herding, Keprios said. "She took to chasing geese immediately," he said. "She didn't need much training."

They do the same thing at Timber Point Golf Course in Great River, NY. I think it's a great idea:

You can eliminate quite a few of the slow moving babies in the springtime with a cart. Doesn't fix the mature adults problem, though.

we had a maintenance guy at our course who had a dog that did that...and he carried a shotgun with blanks for extra help
