Goose And Deer Become Friends At Graveyard [VIDEO]
They didn’t say which cemetery in Buffalo where the deer is guarding the nest, but I think it’s Forest Lawn where President McKinley, Rick James, The Knox family (curators of Buffalo’s Art Gallery) and my grandmother are laid to rest.
What makes the story interesting to me is that interspecies relationships make you wanna say, “Awww!” So it’s no wonder people have taken notice to the springtime friendship that’s blossomed between a goose and deer at the Buffalo cemetery.
Over the past week, the unusual pair has spent loads of quality time together. The mate-less goose nests in a large urn pot while the deer keeps an eye on his friend, making sure she’s protected from predators.
Like humans, geese typically mate for life. So when the female lays eggs and nests, it’s the male’s job to protect his leading lady. It appears as though this goose no longer has a mate, hence the deer stepping in to take over the male’s job.
