I think that the you will find that the only legislation that covers
Canada Geese in NSW at the moment, is the Non-Indigenous Animals Act
1987 (NIAA) , which governs the keeping of exotic animal species.
Under the NIAA Regulations 2006 - Schedule 1 Part 4 Canada Geese are
listed as Category 4. The criteria for inclusion this category are:
(f) Category 4 consists of species that would be unlikely to
present a threat or greatly worsen an existing threat if they
escaped into the wild. Animals in this category will usually be
domestic or farm animals having no pest potential.
, see http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/nsw/consol_reg/nar2006321/
Birds Australia is listed as one of the 3 bodies consulted in regard
to which species were to be included in a category.
Looks like the geese are not cooked.
PS, I was an Inspector under the Act until 2002
