My goose is usually a gigantic jerk. He bites, and hits, and generally is the devil-goose... Last week, it actually got so bad that I was trying to whack him with a cheap (thin and bendy) plastic bowl while he bit me and bruised me with his wings... he remained undeterred. Anyway, 3 days ago, he got traumatized somehow... i don't know what happened, but I couldn't catch him (he usually goes right into the goose house), and he spent 3 nights on the pond... I managed to corner him today, and he didn't try to bite me at all, or anything, and seemed super afraid of me, and of the other geese, and even of my KIDS... which is nuts since he usually tries to kill everything he sees... I know it wasn't the bowl incident that made him lose his mojo, but I don't know what it could be? any ideas?
