Sickened by destruction of goose nest on pier

Dear Editor,

We recently read, on the Sylvan Lake News Facebook page, about a female Canada Goose laying her eggs by the pier with her mate keeping a close guard.

We went to the pier every day to watch from a distance this Canada Goose nesting. We thought it was very special that the Canada Goose chose the pier to nest.

We were gone this past weekend and came on Sunday to see that the nesting mother and her mate were not in their regular spot. My wife and I asked the park staff about the mother goose and they said that a gang of kids destroyed their nest.

We were absolutely appalled that something like this happened in Sylvan Lake. We have always respected nature and are totally sickened from this depraved act. If additional precautions were taken by the Town of Sylvan Lake this might not of happened.

We should all take care of nature as this would be a lonely place without animals.

My parents, John and Diana Kril, asked me to submit this to Sylvan Lake News.

Ashley Kril,

Sylvan Lake
