I just wonder how the geese were disposed of. Were they shot, injected,
or what ? 

 I guess those doing it worked under the charade of "euthanasia" - a
euphemism for killing, just as "culling" is another euphemism for

Presumably euthanasia and culling are more palatable terms which assuage
the killers' consciences.

Why is it that humans think they have the right, the arrogance, to kill
other life forms ?

I understand the conservation arguments re feral invasion and the
problems this may cause, but we've survived the influx of Cattle Egrets,
Starlings, House Sparrows, Common Miners,etc, and the incursions
Long-billed Corellas are making on the east coast - and Perth now has
quite a good population of these too, and the way Eastern Rosellas have
spread across into the Adelaide area. No great disasters. It's not like
foxes and cats which have destroyed populations of native animals -
these are birds we are talking about, harmless birds.
