A 20-year-old Columbia man has been charged with illegally dumping at least two dozen snow geese near a Columbia playground this month, a spokeswoman for Howard County police said yesterday.

Edward Dillon of the 9600 block of Sea Shadow faces a misdemeanor dumping charge that carries a penalty of up to $1,000 or one year in jail, plus other littering charges. Dillon declined yesterday to comment. Police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said that he told police that he received the geese from his boss, and that he had cut some of them up for food.
