He says they may use the same solution in the future.But animal activists say they will try and prevent future slaughter by lobbying local politicians.In the meantime, a food processing plant upstate is working on turning the meat into goose burgers to be dished out to local food pantries.WC Parks Dept. guts gross geese residue
