Codependent goose help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have a goose that refuses to be with his pasture mate and wants to be with humans at all times. He is popping all over the garage apron! He honks loudly if we are in site unless we are petting him! Ideas? He has a pool he loves, we fill it every other day? He was raised in our basement but we tried not to handle him much as he was supposed to be a guard goose! Here is a video of him....https://youtu.be/w7yGwRrh99Y

He's obviously imprinted on humans. You can't change that. Goslings will imprint on the first parentlike thing they see. Not handling him much can't reverse the imprinting - nothing can. If his pasture mate is a goose, he may accept his or her company as a substitute for yours - as long as you're not within sight or earshot.
