I found this article particularly interesting since my niece was born at this naval Hospital!

Portsmouth Naval Medical Center seems to have found the cure for a plague of geese who were leaving droppings all over the hospital grounds: border collies.

In April, the hospital hired handler Richard Ludwig and dogs Pride, Katie and Josie to chase away the geese, according to a news release.

As many as 100 geese would roost on the hospital's helicopter pad, and several dozen more roamed the grounds. Goose droppings can spread diseases such as salmonella and giardia.
