So I found out last night that Charlotte, the goose we got from a member here had disappeared from the pond they were at. We were shocked because this neighborhood has a very secure 8ft fence around it, constant animal control enforcers, strict leash laws, no cats in the neighborhood that we knew of, the only fox that they had ever seen there was two years ago, next to a very busy road that coyotes and such would not be able to cross(plus the fence), 24/7 surveillance, fifteen pekin ducks and probably twenty Canada geese that also live in the pond... We thought: "Why my goose, why of all the other birds why my goose?" Well now we know why. Charlotte was the friendliest of all the birds there, and there is supposedly a neighbor that HATES all of them, and this neighbor took his opportunity to grab a nice bird that wouldn't run away. There was a pile of pretty gray/blue feathers near his yard, and Charlotte was an American Blue. No other ducks or geese have been harmed and not one person in the neighborhood has spotted a fox, coyote, dog, raccoon, and Charlotte was a BIG bird, no tiny red tail hawks could have picked him up. This neighbor vocalizes his hate for the birds at the pond, wild and domestic, who have been living there four almost three years. Why are people so cruel? Kiwi does not like being near people much, and the ducks and wild geese don't really leave the water. I'm going to pick Kiwi up tomorrow morning.
