Geese Allegedly Shot With BB Guns for Fun Deserve Justice

Target: Avery Crump, District Attorney for the Twenty-fourth Prosecutorial District, North Carolina

Goal: Prosecute and penalize youths allegedly involved in harming local wildlife.

Recent postings on the Nextdoor app have ignited community outrage over allegations that local youths have been cruelly mistreating geese in Greensboro. Witnesses claim these juveniles used BB guns to shoot at both geese and their goslings, and pursued them with long sticks. Such actions, if true, reflect a troubling disrespect for life and community standards.

The alleged incidents include not just attacks with BB guns but also reports of geese being intentionally run over in a Walmart parking lot, leading to the deaths of two adult geese. This pattern of behavior has caused significant distress in the community, compounding fears about rising violence and lawlessness in the area. Though still under investigation, these accounts suggest a severe lack of supervision and accountability for local youth.

This petition calls for swift and decisive action to address these serious allegations. We must ensure that such apparent cruelty is not tolerated and those allegedly responsible are held accountable. Serve justice and send a clear message that our community respects and will protect its wildlife.


Dear DA Avery Crump,

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about recent allegations of severe mistreatment of local geese by juveniles in our community. These actions, which reportedly include shooting wildlife with BB guns and chasing them with sticks, have caused significant distress among residents and seem to reflect a disturbing lack of empathy and responsibility.

These alleged incidents suggest a broader issue of youth delinquency that needs immediate attention. It is imperative that these allegations be thoroughly investigated and, if substantiated, that those responsible be held accountable. We believe that taking a firm stance against such behavior is crucial for maintaining community safety and environmental stewardship.

We urge you to respond swiftly to these reports to ensure justice is served. We ask that you prosecute the alleged actions vigorously to hold those responsible accountable and deter future acts of wildlife cruelty. Your commitment to upholding justice in these cases is crucial for reinforcing our community’s values and protecting our local wildlife.

  1. These are not kids, but devils. BB guns do put put eyes and in something so small as goslings cause massive problems. I suggest you shoot these creep kids with BB guns so they can feel the pain for themselves. You don’t have to put their eyes out but the pain from being shot multiple times will let them feel for themselves. As far as sticks, run after them with sticks but be sure you are bigger as this is to show the kids pain! America is not the country once was. Today this country wants to hurt others, to feel bigger and better than others. America wasn’t always like this. Maybe it’s the example the GOP sets these days. They should be ashamed of themselves but they all have Trumpisms. a total disease.
