State workers have rounded up and moved some young geese away from a Lincoln lake.

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission workers removed about 25 goslings at Pine Lake.

The move followed complaints that the Canada geese population had soared at the lake in southeast Lincoln and that the goslings were eating plants and leaving droppings on sidewalks and the swimming beach.

The goslings were taken to a wildlife management area outside Lincoln. No adult geese were moved because they would have led the younger birds back to Pine Lake once they could fly.

The commission took the action at the request of the Pine Lake Association.
