Hunting for the geese killer: search for killer after SIXTEEN birds die in horrifying circumstances
- Derwent Valley Council said they were not involved in killing the birds
- A total of two ducks and 14 geese were killed and an investigation is ongoing
- Derwent Valley Mayor Ben Shaw said that he & # 39; officially speechless & # 39; was about an incident
A total of 16 birds were mysteriously killed by chemically laced baits in a family park.
Derwent Valley Council in Tasmania said they were not involved in the murder of the two ducks and 14 geese in Tynwald Park.
But an investigation into the death of the animals may have discovered the cause that the local mayor & # 39; speechless & # 39; has made.

Derwent Valley Council wrote in a post on Facebook: & # 39; A number of community complaints about excessive bird droppings in the last few months have led Council officials to discuss how to remedy the situation in Tynwald Park. & # 39;
& # 39; One idea that was being investigated was to safely move a number of geese to another part of the valley.
& # 39; After consulting a veterinarian about sedative options, a municipal officer then found that the idea was not viable, and decided to engage a pest business to humanely destroy the target geese. & # 39;
The council said that the licensed pest control company that was employed had used a chemically lased topped that resulted in the death of the birds.
Derwent Valley Mayor Ben Shaw said that he & # 39; officially speechless & # 39; was about the death of the 16 birds.
& # 39; I don't understand how someone would make that choice, & # 39; he said Sunday Tasmanian.

& # 39; We will go into it completely. We have to figure it out.
& # 39; I don't think it would be logical to make a decision, and on behalf of the council I would like to apologize if anyone has been anxious. & # 39;
Alderman Paul Belcher said they will ensure that who ever does the & # 39; inhumane deed & # 39; has been made responsible.
