Protesters have clashed with council staff and contractors at Lake Daylesford over the removal of 29 geese.

It comes a week after councillors at the Hepburn Shire voted to remove the geese from the lake citing aggression and environmental damage.

The unanimous vote from the council meeting ruffled the feathers of some locals who started a petition online to try and prevent the geese from being re-homed to the Mornington Peninsula, garnering close to 4,000 signatures in a week.

More than 30 people gathered at the lake yesterday to try and stop their removal, including Australian culinary legend Alla Wolf-Tasker.
