North Little Rock Mayor May Allow Hunting in Town

Last year the town of North Little Rock, Arkansas found their town inundated with geese. The mayor thought allowing hunting would be the best solution to remove the nuisance animals, but that ended up not happening as other means were used to remove the geese. The council had approved the use of firearms on city owned land for the removal.

Now the North Little Rock City Council is considering a proposed ordinance that would allow the mayor to approve the discharge of firearms on city-owned property to remove any nuisance animals. It requires three days of public notice. The mayor just wants to have the ordinance in place in case of an emergency situation where it would be needed without having to wait for the council to meet again and approve it. From The Republic.
