    So i went to close the geese about 20 min after sunset maybe less, well only the goose was in there, she didnt look to traumatized and was talking normal, but the gander was missing, could he of just wanted to sleet outside somewere and not come in the coop at night? but if so why would the female leave him, im pretty sure nothing got ahold of him!

    I don't have a lot of experience, but the only time I've ever seen a goose go off on its own was when something was wrong with it. Then, a predator would get it. Predators can live right under your nose without you ever seeing or hearing them for their entire lives, even in urban areas.
