LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Hepburn Council's decision to remove domestic geese from Lake Daylesford is consistent with its biodiversity strategy that was produced after exhaustive community consultation.
The days of introducing exotic animals into public land have surely passed, for the dire consequences are just as surely known.
The lake is not a private zoo or farm yard; it is a public reserve and its native inhabitants will now be protected from the capricious dumping of animals, be they geese, carp, goats, turkeys or whatever other species some individual may inflict upon them.
I look forward to the day when black swans return to the lake.
Greg Pyers, Daylesford
