enjoyed working with this family in New Haven to rescue
Fanny and Mac. She and her husband took all of our
advice and thoroughly conditioned the geese for today's
rescue. The neighbors were being unreasonable and trying
to scare them off before the rescue, but this couple did
not stand for it. They put their foot down and advised
the neighbors to back off.
up this morning and they lured the two geese up on
shore, just where we advised them to a few weeks ago,
cornering them in an area of the lawn where they could
not get back to the river. We hid on the other side of
the house, so they would not suspect anything. Once they
were in the right spot, Tony and I walked between them
and the river, cornered them and picked them up. It was
a 10 minute rescue--my favorite!
Mac & Fanny are now safely here! Mac is
VERY imprinted on humans, but lacks very good manners.
He practically climbs on top of me and then gives me a
passionate nibble... which steadily grows out of
control. Oh no, this is not allowed, Mac!
Fanny is shy and keeping away from us
for the time being.
Fanny & Mac!
