While Prospect Park officials have struggled to combat the ever growing geesocalypse, community members are clearly more alarmed by the increasingly bold raccoon population. The scavengers are becoming a common sight in neighborhood backyards and a deceased raccoon in the park was recently found to have rabies. As a public service, PLOG has decided to compare these two threats side-by-side, mano a mano.

Canada Goose Raccoon
Looks cute Looks cute but wants to kill you
Eats grass Eats anything
May give you diseases if you bite them May bite you and give you disease
Population here because of humans Natural inhabitant of region
Tastes like greasy dark meat chicken Said to taste like pork
Allegedly crashes planes Last month raccoon stowed a ride on fuel truck at JFK

What do you think is the greater threat readers?
