    Help! 2 beautiful baby geese have moved into my backyard. They are very friendly and defenseless. Unfortunately, due to Mississippi River flooding the neighborhood has been under coyote attack and I am afraid these babies are their next meal. I have a large dog and can't really keep them, but would love to have someone take them and care for them. I'm pretty sure their mother was eaten by the coyotes. Any suggestions?

    Can you call up a local wildlife rehab place. They may be able to send someone to come and pick them up- or ask you to drop them off depending on the laws where you live. If they are friendly- they may be domestic geese and someone nearby is looking for them- ask around the neighborhood and see if anyone knows of someone who keeps geese.

    I don't know, but don't leave them unprotected especially over night!
