This recent spate of violence against geese is no different than gay-bashing, lynch mobs and gang rape: A segment of humans makes themselves feel superior by bullying, abusing and beating others. The geese are considered a safe target for human aggression.
I don't know if people like this can ever be taught compassion, but understand this, animal abusers: The days of "it's just an animal so we can do what we want to her" are over. There are laws against what you do, and they're being enforced.
