MANASQUAN: A borough man admitted he needlessly killed a Canadian goose by shooting it with a pellet gun, officials said.

David J. Martens, 65, of Perrine Boulevard, pleaded guilty this afternoon to needlessly killing a living creature, said Victor "Buddy" Amato, chief of the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

On June 9, Martens was charged with firing the gun out of his window, shooting the goose, Amato said.

When he was issued the summons, Martens told authorities he was trying to scare the goose because it had been defecating on his deck, the chief said.

Today, Municipal Court Judge Mark T. Apostolou ordered Martens to pay a $1,000 fine, said Amato.

i see Amato is in the news again. This guy is unbelievable.

It kind of seems weird to me that this guy is charged with "needlessly killing" an animal, yet the state can gas thousands of them. I guess in that instance its "the state says it can do it so it will do it"?????

Id give him 10 bucks and a box of pellets. There nothing but damn rats with wings, They dont belong here shoot them all. Dont even see how a township can rule on a "wild animal" in the first place. this is fish and wildlife, federal at that. Worst case he should have been charged with shooting out of season.One shot one kill is not cruelty.
