I’ve heard that the goose is now getting mobbed by folks at the cemetery and with the border collie patrol, is making life very stressful for this goose.  I managed to sneak a short peak at the goose and the small flock and observed them being very nervous and stressed.

With the temps dropping, the places geese will be able to go will shrink, and life will be more precarious for this one.

Food for thought.

Thanks,
