Drive around Lake Vista and you'll find them grazing by the water.
From a distance geese add to the beauty of the neighborhood, but look closer and you'll see something much less attractive.
"We have these massive numbers of geese that will come and stand in our yards, leave their droppings and feed on the grass," said Michael Walker, a Lake Vista resident.
Many people who live in the community say geese have been creating problems for years.
"A few is fine, but there's a point of diminishing returns after your exceed a certain number," said Claude Mays, a resident and president of the Lake Vista homeowner's association.
Mays believes the animals are a health hazard. His yard is full of droppings and he worries about the safety of his grand kids.
"They play over here and, at that age, they pick up things and put it in their mouth," Mays said.
The homeowner's association has tried all sorts of things to get rid of the birds.
"We use noisemakers, firecrackers, guns," said Walker.
Nothing seems to work.
"It will discourage them for a while, but then they come back," said Mays.
They're now considering a more permanent solution. The homeowner's association is contacting the United States Department of Agriculture, to see if the neighborhood qualifies for a goose control program.
The birds would be rounded up and put to sleep by wildlife experts, possibly through the use of gas.
"They do it humanely," said Walker. "They don't just come in and whack them and haul them off."
Some say the procedure is cruel and doesn't need to happen. The lake is a natural habitat for the birds.
Residents who favor the euthanasia say it's a matter of safety.
"At some point in time, you have to make some choices about how to protect your community," said Walker.
If the geese are euthanized, the process would be handled entirely by wildlife experts.
The remains of the birds would be turned into food for other animals. It would be donated to zoos and wildlife refuge sites.
An agent with the United States Department of Agriculture is expected to visit this summer to study the idea.
