My wife and I have been trying to alert local DNR of what we believe to be inhumane and unlawful practices with Canada Geese eggs in our locale. It is shameful that a local apartment management company obtained a license to control the Canada Goose population and there is no local enforcement actions or oversight for proper practices. Recently, maintenance personnel took more than three dozen eggs from nests, some of which my wife and I calculated were ready to hatch the same day or next (we monitor several nests) and tossed them over a fence to "feed the raccoons." How do I know? I asked them and they outright admitted it. We have pictures we intend to provide to DNR, if they ever return our calls. We are not holding our breath. What a shame!

Dear Love Canada Geese, my family raised 6 Canada Geese when I was a child. I have many fond memories of these wonderful birds and to this day, when I hear them flying overhead it makes me think of my youth.


Fast forward to today: I am currently working on a documentary about the hazzards of plastics for our Savannah Riverkeeper here in Augusta Georgia. I found an image on your website showing a goose with a plastic six pack ring stuck on it and wondered if I could obtain permission from you to use it in our video about keeping the river clean and cutting back on single use plastics? I would attribute your photo if you would like?

Sincerely,


Mark Albertin

Long live Canada geese.

I don't know if two entries from the same fan are permissable, but our angel wing goose has made it, (with a 12" heated water dish to stand or sit in, a heat lamp and some of the time with an extra space heater) and now with a self heating pet pad, through one of the most severe winters we've had. He (or she) doesn't hiss at me so much, tolerates me several feet away changing the water twice a day, and filling the food dish. Lately we and 'goose' are hearing other geese flying overhead and soon they will come to the nearby lake from where he came in the first place. So,we enjoy his (or her ) life.

I love the geese, I go every year to a retention pond take picks and watch the geese, I enjoy watching them and learn about them. I'm kind of known to be the goose lady because I'm there mid morning and afternoon. I've seen the female goose laying on her babies and some around her. I do not get to close because I see the male is watching, I always talk to him and say I will not hurt your babies. I've gotten some pretty nice picks of the geese with the babies.

Hi,

Thank you for your site on Canada geese.

With my 2nd goose, with angel wing, captured and housed for the winter, I felt compelled to

converse with someone else interested, involved, and caring about these facinating wild birds.

I become attached to them, tho from a distance, as, like you know, they like to be in the wild.

My experiences with them, 2 years apart, is rewarding, and educational.

Sharon

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
