a lesson from the animal kingdom
Winnipeg homeowner Choo Rosenbloom is trying to save eight geese that won't fly south.
The trouble is, she can't catch them. Two are injured with broken wings and the others are healthy, but appear to be guarding their injured mates . . . . . . It's very common for geese to stay with their injured family members, since they have a very strong family bond, said Henry Murkin, director of conservation programs for Ducks Unlimited.
'The young would be reluctant to leave their parents if one of them is hurt and the parents are reluctant to leave if one of their young is hurt,' Murkin said.1
There are a lot of people who could benefit by learning a thing or two from the family bonds between Canadian geese - and even those of wolves, whom are fiercely loyal to their mates.
