Visit to environmental destruction, the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese

On March 29, 2013, I visited the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese, just east of the BU Bridge on the north side of the Charles River in Cambridge, MA, USA.

On my way to the environmental outrage, I noticed four white vehicles marked “Auson” under Memorial Drive where responsible workers park. There were two or three small boxes with peaked roofs up to a height of perhaps four feet. These boxes look like some sort of entomological (bug) operation, not apparently related to the rail workers implementing the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s animal destructive policies. Strange, I just checked their marked website and came up with zero.

While I observed the DNA, three privately owned vehicles joined about six already there plus one company marked vehicle. The riders exited the vehicles in a manner which showed no reasons to be parking there, except for laziness and contempt for valuable 32 year resident animals. One of the newcomers was behaving like a supervisor or an engineer carrying corresponding papers. The metal structure which had generated so much noise last time was silent this time. It appeared to have been moved a few feet closer to the river, an even more destructive location.

There were two other privately owned vehicles in the small parking lot next to the BU Bridge which was created during the “repairs.” The publicity of those “repairs”, of course, made no mention of creating a permanent parking lot. While the plans were responsibly implemented, as much as possible, by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, they were drawn up by the destructive DCR.

I spoke with a woman who was walking by with a child. She had been looking over the side observing nests and the mother geese on them. She was well aware of the seriousness of the human activity so close to those nests.

A worker from the Charles River Urban Wilds Initiative was there feeding the Charles River White Geese. This is essential because Cambridge and the DCR have been deliberately starving these beautiful, valuable 32 year residents for years now.

What is the bragging of the Cambridge Machine activists? “How dare you object to my environmental destruction. I am exercising my rights as a bully and a heartless animal abuser.” The real words, of course, are much more hypocritical.
