Subject: Don't Feed the Geese!
Please distribute this broadly to your building occupants.
Geese have discovered numerous areas on campus where they like to build nests. Often times they have eggs or goslings and become extremely protective of the area around the nests. When humans get close to these nests they are often times attacked, which has led to injuries to IUPUI employees.
The Campus Facility Services (CFS) Grounds Department personnel are trying to keep geese from building nests around buildings and they need your help. Some people want to feed the geese, but this is a bad practice for many reasons. DO NOT FEED THE GEESE! If you see others feeding them, please inform them that they should not feed them. It is IUPUI’s practice not to feed any wild birds or animals on campus.
The CFS Grounds Department has a federal permit to remove and/or destroy eggs and nests. If you encounter problems with geese, please contact the CFS Trouble Line at 278-19**.
So next time when I get attacked by a goose while happily jogging in campus roads, I will sure contact the CFS Trouble Hotline. O_O
