New Hashtag Needed

Why there’s a fake coyote on duty at Nathanael Greene Park in Springfield, Mo.:

Park administrators recently placed a coyote decoy on the peninsula in Lake Drummond. That’s the site of a new mosaic sundial.

They hope the decoy will keep Canada Geese from leaving droppings behind that could stain the newly poured concrete. Park workers say they weighed several factors when choosing which coyote to deploy.

Park administrators ask you to do your part to keep the area free of geese by leaving the decoy alone.
