white goose in my neighborhood all alone...

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 

I ha029.JPG028.JPG030.JPG031.JPGI live in South Central Pa, not sure if that is important or not..

 

There are always ducks & geese nearby, hanging out in water-retention ponds & such, even through winter. Lately there is a white goose all alone, do they breed for life? I always feel bad for it when I drive by, in this huge water-retention pond, with no other geese to be found.

 

Just curious!

Thanks

Sounds like he got dumped there, poor thing.  He may have had a partner, but something might have happened to it.

I have read that geese mate for life. In a way that's sweet and awful at the same time. It's really hard on them I imagine when they lose their mates.

 I meant is it hanging out with any other ducks or geese wild or domestic?  Can you give it a home?  does it look malnourished?

If it is a domestic goose that got dumped and is all alone...it won't stand too much of a chance on it's own. I agree with Lydia and a couple others: This sounds like a potential rescue operation. Poor thing.

Please help it! If you can't, can you find someone who will? I would take it if I was in driving distance.

Let me know if you need help rescuing it.  I'm near Hershey, PA.  I could also foster it until a permanent home is found.
