    Some New Yorkers have protested the plan to euthanize 170,000 geese near the city's airports. 

    Mayor Bloomberg, however, has made it clear that, with the state still lacking a budget and New York City facing huge cuts next year, he has other things on his mind.

    When the Wall Street Journal asked Bloomberg for a comment on the geese-gassing plan, he made it clear that the geese were not his primary concern.

    "Look, the Department of Agriculture has to deal with the fact that all these geese are a danger to people flying.  People are not going to stop flying and we have to make a decision." he told the Journal.

    "It's geese or human beings -- I can tell you where I come out on that.  I don't think you need a quote from me."
