Tulsa Community College’s Southeast Campus at 81st and US Highway 169 has a geese problem. Actually, they like the geese; it is what the geese leave behind on grass and sidewalks that's the real problem.

So school officials have acquired some help in the form of half a dozen cardboard cutouts of coyotes and foxes. They've placed them around the campus in an effort to corral the geese.

TCC landscape supervisor Darrell Hamilton: "The few days we've had this out they've really been effective in stopping the traffic."

They also have put out something called Holographic Irritation Tape and the TCC landscape crew will move the cutouts every few days to keep the geese guessing.
