This is actually no joke, the lone goose may die of a broken heart. It happened at a place near me when someone attacked the mate in the middle of the night. He was killed by a knife attack, and soon after, the female died. It made me feel a little better that the townspeople in that area were deeply angry at this, and they put together night watchmen for weeks after, because this had happened before and I guess they were fed up. It made me cry. She left behind two babies. We're not the only ones with hearts.

Of all the targets that person chose to attack a goose and murder it. Even with all of the possible irony that is such a crap move and so sad. Good that the citizens rose up in anger after that tho. Poor bird.

So, I was homeless in that area at the time and I passed by that pond every night, on my nightly walk to keep myself awake overnight. When I heard this second attack happened, I was so mad but also freaked out because I might have seen or passed by him, though I made it a point to avoid populated areas at all costs.

They did arrest him. Younger guy. So sad.

Honestly with the way society treats animals, particularly animals like poultry, it’s not that surprising some asshole went out of their to target a goose.
