Neighborhood takes orphaned goose that couldn’t fly south for the winter under their wing

Yeah, he’s a good girl. Hi, goes, goes, goes I have known her since she was hatched here on this lake this summer and I kept an eye on her and I kept talking to her and she would come up towards the house. Um, I had some cracked corn for the Chipmunks and for the birds, and she would eat that. They named her goose afer, And Joan Maxwell has been caring for her from a distance since she noticed her wings weren’t full enough to fly very far. She can get from here out to the middle of this, like she could get from here over to the other leg. But she just can’t go any further than that. When goose offers family abandoned her toe head south for the winter. Joan wasn’t the Onley neighbor concerned in the middle of the frozen like is this goose just sitting there? Which is the incarnation of hopelessness and just loneliness? After Joan called a local animal rehabilitator who lives in the neighborhood and got some advice, Brett Lamb, who also lives nearby, put his woodworking skills to the test. A sleep bag in there. And then there’s ah tub in there that Joan put in there so that the goose can actually float and can keep its head lubricated. Joan told me This is only temporary. I do not intend to try to tame her in the least. She’s a wild animal, and I want her to stay wild. But I want her to stay safe until she can fly to migrate away next fall. Still, she and Brett say their teamwork serves as a reminder. Sometimes all it takes is a couple neighbors, some plywood and hey, to make a difference. You know, there’s so many bad things going on right now that that we really gotta embrace the good things, such as what happened here, you know, the community coming together and everybody working together.
