Council members who voted to cull their local geese population have received death threats from 'extinction rebellion supporters'. 

Members of Lydney Town Council, including mayor Tasha Saunders, received threatening phone calls around 2am today. 

The disgusting threats came after reports over the last week have said the Cotswolds town voted 10-3 to cull 'frightening' Canada geese at Lydney Boating Lake which has upset some nature lovers. 

According to a council member, a supporter of eco-activist group Extinction Rebellion told them, 'I am going to kill you instead'. 

The decision to cull the geese was not 'an easy one' but a council source has claimed that they will first try non-lethal methods
