It's the Canada goose that's causing all the problems.
"Thank you for saying Canada geese not Canadian," said Burns park ranger Ian Home. "It's not their nationality it's their species."
More commonly known in the area as simply a nuisance.
"They won't move!" said Hope. "They're just not afraid of humans."
The large bird stands unafraid in front of bikes and cars and there's even been incidents where people have run into them and have been hurt.
"They leave fecal matter everywhere," said Hope. "They're wild animals."
They made their home in this area, taking a liking to the short grass for feeding and brushy areas for nesting, but animal lovers fear not; plans for an organized hunt to get rid of the birds was met with major opposition and park rangers say that's their last option.
"We would rather do the harassment technique," said Hope. "Where we're just trying to encourage the geese to get out of our park and go somewhere else to live."
Trained border collie's like Little Rock's Fern can help in that area.
"They're pretty pricey," said Hope.
At up to $6,000, they're hoping they can go in with Little Rock for two new dogs at a discount.
Until then the geese seem to have the rule of the roost.
