In adorable news, a deer in Buffalo, New York, is playing bodyguard to a nesting goose and her unborn goslings.
So, the deal is that when geese mate they mate for life, but when they lose that mate it’s a problem because male geese are typically the ones to defend the nest. Enter the savior deer who has been standing guard over the nest for over a week.
The goose decided to take up shop in a cemetery urn, creating a nest inside of it. Only problem is that in that specific cemetery, there are actually hired dogs that are used to chase away geese.
It was Craig Cygan, a regular patrol who leads his goose-chasing border collies around the cemetery, who discovered the nesting goose… and a deer standing guard next to the urn.
“I know their behaviors and their habits, and it was just unusual that you have a deer protecting a goose nest,” Cygan said. “For some reason they have a bonding relationship and it seems to be working.”
