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