dc.description.abstractA type of marsh damage, locally known as eatout, is the normal consequence of the intensive feeding habit peculiar to blue and snow geese. Similiar damage results when muskrats are allowed to overpopulate their habitat. This phenomenon occurs from the marshes of Louisiana to Galveston Bay, Texas. Both types of damage benefit certain forms of wildlife, but goose eatouts have greater wildlife value and produce fewer harmful results.en_US
