Michigan Town Using Coyote Decoys to Keep Beach Clean

Fecal waste from geese has elevated E. coli levels at a beach in Howell, Mich., forcing city officials to close the beach for the summer. Now the city is fighting back by spooking the geese away using coyote decoys.

The E. coli levels are currently eight times higher than the level where swimmers begin to report illness, according to a Frank Konkel story in the Lansing State Journal.

City officials report some success with the coyote decoy strategy. The decoys are moved at night so the geese do not become accustomed to them.
