WOODBURY, Minn., June 10 (UPI) -- A Minnesota man said he solved the problem of goose droppings in his neighborhood by installing a fake alligator head in a pond.

Jim Orsello, 67, of Woodbury, said he scared away the geese responsible for messing up lawns and sidewalks with a floating gator head he purchased online, the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press reported Friday.

"It worked very well," Orsello said.

Orsello said the geese were fooled, even if the nearest wild alligators are located hundreds of miles to the south. He said other animals, including ducks, simply ignore the rubber reptile.
