Because large size, a goose must make a long run before off m night. "When one of the wild birds is on the the enclosure, Mr. George can approach it from the direction, knowing that the bird must run towards before taking off. The real trick involved is grasping bird's wings before he can start beating his captor. wings are so powerful they have been known to man's arm or leg. * · · * Mr. George has one pair of geese which are over 75 years Geese have been known to live more than a century. They hatch jtosllnjn oniy once every two years. When one of a mated pair the survivor never mates again. * * · ·
