From Mike Jarman's posting of 16 January..."The population in NZ has
decended from less than 50 birds introduced in 1905. Apparently they were a gift from Theodore Roosevelt, providing the kiwis (people, not the birds) with something to shoot. The population now is suspected at about 40 000 geese and increasing rapidly."

Perhaps NZ should tap up George Bush or his successor to say they can come and take their present back!
