The sign makes no sense for other reasons. How does public health (or lack thereof) lead to non-migration? And this is supposed to be a Circle of Poo, but poo isn't even mentioned in the circle itself.

Can this sign be fixed? It's "waterfowl" not "waterfowl."

There is nothing harmful in goose droppings. The Canada goose was thought to be extinct due to DDT until a biologist found a flock in Minnesota. Our 65,000 resident geese are derived from this flock. One goose, a thousand humanoids. They are vegetarians and their droppings have been declared safe by the FDA. Dog poop is another matter. They are carnivores. Their undigested proteins are edible by other animals, think skunk, rats, mice, even other dogs. Also, below 45 degrees there is little to no breakdown til Spring...
