Beware of the eye

In an effort to discourage geese from grazing on the sports fields, Physical Facilities has positioned large “terror eye” balloons on playing fields. The birds, non-migrating “giganta” Canada geese, weigh about 15 pounds and eat two to three pounds of grass per day. Similar balloons have been used at airports, parking lots, granaries, gardens, farm fields, orchards and vineyards. The balloons, which are tethered, measure 16 inches and are made of heavy-duty vinyl.
