The goose with a human friend

Postby Raiem » Tue Mar 01, 2011 3:35 pm

Did anyone see the CBS Evening News last night? Of course, I can't remember what city it was in, but there was a park that this man went to every day. It looked like a pretty popular place for people to go. Large pond, people walking their dogs, or just generally hanging out. This one man went there every day to walk. At the beginning of the piece it showed this goose standing close to the road. The man drove up on his scooter, the goose went straight to him and he and the goose went for a walk. This goose just attached to this man and every day waited for him to come and stayed right with him. The man didn't feed this goose, for some reason it just liked him. It would even chase off dogs if they got too close to him. The interviewer asked him how this had changed him, and he said...well, I no longer eat poultry...he went on to say that he always thought that birds were stupid, but he doesn't think that any more. It was a short piece, but so cool.

A friend on FB posted a link to the video:

Very sweet! And it shows the power of the animals themselves as advocates, when the reporter asks "has this changed you in any way?"

The answer is probably obvious - he quit eating birds.

Now let's get him to a sanctuary so he can quit eating animal products altogether!
