I woke up to clear skies and went for a walk in the park.
I haven’t had a chance to share the horrible experience of our beloved geese getting murdered. It started about 3 weeks ago now when I noticed there was a white goose missing. We have a gaggle of 12 geese in our park and 1 Muscovy. So I noticed one of the white ones ( there were 3)missing.. Then I counted the geese and there were only 9. So I thought that’s weird. There’s no feathers or carcasses on the grass. I was concerned as the geese stay on the water at night and after our 2nd round on the path when it starts to get light they start coming on to the grass. So I was definitely worried like where did the geese go?
So last week, posted on our town’s nextdoor neighbor, someone posts what happened to the geese? There are dead geese down by the post office. I flipped out. Apparently, at 8:30 the night before a car plowed thru the gaggle and murdered almost all of them. We saw feathers all over and a number of dead geese on our way down that morning to walk. I was beside myself. At the park 0 geese. Not even Uggy our beloved muscovy.
Many people commented including me, as to how could the geese have gotten down there from the pond. They NEVER go off the water at night.
Sadly, we will never know but I think it was maybe teenage boys who started on the first 3 earlier. Then 2 weeks later somehow got the rest of the gaggle down the road and ran them over. I know it sounds far fetched but I just can’t imagine them marching all the way thru town to the post office at 8:30 at night.
It’s been sad to go to the park and not have my friends there and I miss them. Plus I hope whoever did this to the innocent geese get exactly what they deserve.
