hello thank you all for the great poems and stories. I have a pond across the road in front of my house. and every year a pair of geese nest here and it's so exciting to see the little ones and watch them grow. the parents are so proud..they walk them up and down the roads to show them off. I love watching as the parents teach them and love them. the drake is doing his part by protecting them at all cost. if u even think about getting close he straight up let u know your making a huge mistake je will fight to his death to protect his gaggle.i sometimes wish .people would do the same as far as teaching protection and family values....we should all take lessons from geese....could u imagine how great earth would be

I love those Canadian Geese! Don't see how anyone could dislike such great creatures just because they poop too!!! Me and my spouse had the pleasure of rescuing one that was left in it's mothers nest while she took off with the other 3 early hatched siblings. She was just about dead when we found her left in the cold. We called a bird santuary and they screamed SUGAR WATER & HEAT!!!! So that's what we gave for the next 24 hours and to our surprise she began to move and lift her head 2 hours into our treatment. 24 hours later she was trying to move around our living room but kept falling over. 48 hours later she was running all over our living room! We raised her for the next 10 months and we enjoyed every bit of it. We lived on the river where she would learn and watch all the other geese and their behaviors. The day came when she was ready and flew away, not coming back home when I called. It was so sad for us for a few weeks but we knew we had done our job well, she is now somewhere living out her life as she should be with birds like her. We named her Sunshine and we will never be the same since having her in our lives. These birds are awesome and they never attack anyone, they may run at you because they feel threatened but even when they peck or bite at you, their beaks are so dull that there's nothing there to hurt you or draw any blood. So many lies have been told about these beautiful birds there's never a need to fear them unless you are too close... then they'll continually hiss and fly around your head. :-) I wish hunters would have a heart when they needlessly kill them. We now have rescued 1 more and delivered it to the local bird sanctuary. We just love them!!!

I am so grateful to find your website today>One of the greatest things that ever happened to me happened on the day my( gentle)dog came up the driveway with a nestling goose tucked in his mouth..........DROP IT ....I yelled,though I had no Idea who/what it was being too far away to determine,but I sensed it was alive.I ran down to investigare and found the gooseling,,, a little soggy ,but seemed completely indifferent to his situation. He stayed in our yard from that time completely free to leave but became attached to our two dogs.Some people believe that human beings are the Crown of Creation.,but my experience saved me from that herd.We can easily become enlighted,freeing ourself from that delusion,but we are the most self-serving creatures,endarkening our imagination with hostile nonsense regarding those we could learn so much more about ourselves from....etc.(those who don't speak our language throughout the eco-system).thanks for your service in that regard. sincerely...paul

I printed this article and am sharing with every goose hunter I come across!! It makes me so upset when I hear about the senseless killing that goose hunting creates for sport. I too have witnessed the mourning of a single goose having lost its partner to a hunter. The spared goose mourningfully called for his/her partner for a week in the field where the other was shot, before he/she finally left and moved on alone.

I support your cause 110% and wish I could do more!


Thank you for what you do.

I Love Canadian Geese. Its unfortunate the way they are treated

by some people; in Great Britain and elsewhere. People who

claim to be 'bird lovers' and dislike the Canadian Goose;

are not 'bird lovers' at all. Especially, people who raid their

nests, and do other nasty things to them.

I Love the Canadian Geese & Will Do Everything to Protect Them!

Hi!

Thanks for this amazing website about the most AMAZING animal on earth!

Last year, I rented a house with a pond, and bonded so closely with a group (17) of Canada geese. Their "leader" was a BIG, beautiful canada goose hybrid (I suspect Canada goose X white fronted goose).

Because they were babies (they weren't honking yet, rather the softer juvenile sound) - i was able to bond with them and they let me hold them and hug them.

One day soon I'll compile all the videos I took of my time with those ANGELS and share it with the world. Thanks everyone!

Patrick.

Hi,


I am very concerned about a lone Canada goose that has been sitting beside of my pond for about 6 weeks. He walks, swims and eats, however, I have not seen him fly. I am very worried about him, I am afraid if he doesn't fly away soon my condo association will have him destroyed.


I have contacted Animal Control and about 20 rescues and rehabbers. There is a vet about 4 miles away that will look at him, however, I don't know how to get there. I have also contacted PETA and sent them phots of the goose. Any information you can supply would be greatly appreciated.




Thank you.
