A Canada Goose can Poop So Much…


An adult Canada goose can poop as much as 2 pounds a day.

Let that stink in for a minute. The Canada goose can way between about 7 to 19 pounds meaning they can drop a load every day at up to 20% of their body weight.

That would compare to a 150 lb adult person taking 3 poops a day at 10 lbs each! How disgusting!

As it turns out, there’s actually some issue with birds that poop this much. While the Canada goose was nearly endangered many years ago, wildlife protections have made them much more common.

They’re so common in fact, that their droppings actually damage local parks and cost taxpayers tons of money in ground maintenance in public spaces. A group of 50 geese can create 2.5 tons of excrement in a single year.

How’s that for having a sh*tty day?
