(Emmetsburg)-- Residents along Five Island Lake at Emmetsburg shouldn't be surprised if they hear some loud bangs over the next several months.

Emmetsburg officials say the city will be periodically firing a non-lethal canon in an effort to deter large populations of geese. They say the action is being taken “to protect the lake, shoreline, parks and community property”.

City officials say some additional measures may be taken over the next several seasons when the geese are migrating.
