Bambi Protects Mother Goose

Bambi Protects Mother Goose

BUFFALO, NY - It's a scene right out of a Disney movie, a mother goose has lost her lifelong mate and was left alone to create and tend to her nest.  She spends the day sheltering her eggs from the cold spring air inside an empty cemetery urn chosen as home. 

The loss of her male partner now makes her vulnerable to any would-be predators who choose to approach the nest.  But, in an unlikely twist of fate, an adult deer has befriended the mother goose, taking over the role of protector. 

This animal arrangement is highly unusual, since there's no known way that a deer and goose can communicate.
