Deport Ilegal Alien Canadian Geese !
Date: Thursday, January 22, 2009, 11:02 AM
US Airways violated Federal migratory bird regulations by hunting geese with an A320 Airbus jetliner, claim anonymous government sources. The pilot of flight 1549, Air Force veteran and avid hunter Chesley B. Sullenberger, tried combining both of his interests by bagging a brace of geese over the wetlands near New York's LaGuardia airport after takeoff, on his way to Charlotte, North Carolina.
The imported $77 million A320 airliner is
not certified for either waterfowl or upland bird hunting, so it was
not surprising that the aircraft malfunctioned, forcing Captain
Sullenberger to ditch the plane in the Hudson River.
The crew and 150 passengers were chilled and shaken but unhurt. Most
were simply grateful to avoid spending the weekend in Charlotte.
National Transportation Safety Board inspectors, rushed to the scene, reportedly found no Duck Stamps on
the downed aircraft's fuselage. Captain Sullenberger has not been
charged but is being held incommunicado at an undisclosed location. PETA
is urging the government to prosecute the pilot for double honkercide
and poaching, and the animal rights group is expected to file a civil
suit on behalf of the flock.
The two victims were undocumented aliens, according to sources close to the investigation, Canada geese who had over-stayed their visas. Their goose gang scandalized their quiet Queens community by squatting in local cemeteries and golf courses,
parking on the grass, cooking strange-smelling food and throwing wild
parties late into the night. Neighbors say police dogs were called out
on several occasions. Such incidents have triggered a wave of anti-Canada goose sentiment, but at this time revenge or hate crime motives are not suspected in the US Airways bird bashings.
Forensic examination of the avian corpses
continues, and technicians are analyzing the two cadavers under heat
with chestnuts, prunes, and Armagnac. NTSB inspectors have contributed
a supply of testing fluid, a 2005 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling from Alsace.
We will update this story as entrees details become available.
Note:The aircraft took off from La Guardia Airport before hitting the
birds. La Guardia is operated bythe Port Authority of New York and New
Jersey. The Port Authority's logo is a bird.
