Colusa Park, Recreation and Tree Commission Chairman Leslie Poland, and Animal Control Officer Pam DaGrossa were “goosed” Saturday for a good cause.

A flock of geese was sent to the Colusa home of Derrek Ash, on Saturday, for a good cause. Neighbors Leslie Poland and Pam DaGrossa “Goosed” Ash with a donation to the Community Foundation of Colusa County (WPR Community Fund) as payback for his own practical jokes. The flock of waterfowl soaked up the sunshine for a few minutes before being frightened away by Ash’s ornamental lawn coyote.
