PROSPECT PARK - The Department of Environmental Protection says it will not be reducing the geese population in Prospect Park this summer.

The department says its effort to reduce the risk that Canadian geese pose to airplanes is working.

The geese population has been cut in half within 7 miles of city airports since last year.

More than 350 geese were removed from Prospect Park alone last year.

City officials say they still plan on removing between 700-800 geese from within the 7-mile radius of city airports, just not from Prospect Park.
