We have a skunk hanging around in our neighbor hood and he is probably going after my ducks eggs. They just started laying so there all around the yard. So will a goose kill it because there protective.
My geese are pretty ornery all year... and when there are birds of prey around, the ducks pretty much run over and stand next to them - they're a bit of paper tigers though. They've managed to put the fear into the dog, but I think if they ever cornered him it'd be a mess, and not in their favor.I'd say a goose/gander would only run off a skunk or discourage it. And in my experience geese are only protective when the area that they are nesting in is disturbed, they don't seem to care about other birds welfare, they are only effective when the birds you are trying to protect live within the geese territory. And with geese strength in numbers is also key.
