of geese attack disabled man near nest</A>

A disabled Plainfield man was attacked by two Canada geese outside a
Northwestside department store in the latest conflict between people and the
growing number of the aggressive birds settling in at local ponds.

The geese have become so prolific that the state Department of Natural
Resources has almost exhausted the 1,300 nest-destruction permits it can
issue this year.

won't be charged in attack on goose eggs and nests</A>

A woman suspected of destroying goose eggs and nests -- and another woman who
was with her -- will not face charges but will receive warnings, a state
conservation officer said Thursday.
