Video: Country Club hires four-legged help to control geese
To address the proliferation of geese at its ponds, Rancho Murieta Country Club has hired an Auburn company that deals with the problem humanely -- with dogs that chase the geese.
What a great video! If RMCC finds this service to be effective, wouldn't it be nice to also use their services at Lake Clementia so our kids could swim and play at a clean lake and beach this summer!?!? When we moved here 2 1/2 years ago, we knowingly purchased a house without a pool with the understanding that we could swim at Lake Clementia, which is walking distance from our home. Little did we know about the goose droppings or the impact they have on the quality of the beach sand and water in the swimming area. We are considering selling our house (which we love) for the simple reason of exchanging it for a home with a pool. (We cannot put in a pool of our own due to the moratorium on exclusive use approval). Perhaps addressing the quality of Lake Clementia swimming area would be a less expensive and less disruptive solution for us.
