College uses dog to fight geese problem
Officials with Boston's Simmons College said the school is employing the services of a border collie to drive Canada geese away from the campus.
The officials said Finn, the 5-year-old dog, was recruited after a flock of Canada geese began using the women's college's new quad as a restroom, The Boston Globe reported Monday.
Finn stays with Yturregui for most of the work day until maintenance worker David Weeks comes by twice a day to walk the dog around the quad to scare off geese and do his own business, which Weeks cleans immediately.
