Geese mate for life and when the female lays her eggs the male guards the nest. When this goose lost her mate she nested in an urn in a Buffalo, New York cemetery but, with no male to guard her, she was vulnerable to predators. A deer stepped into the breach and has taken on the role of protector of this mother goose and her soon-to-be goslings for more than a week.
The deer now spends its days near the urn acting as guardian when needed. As passersby approach the area the deer stands and places itself between the person and the nesting goose. On one occasion the deer even took a protective stance attempting to fend off a barking dog near the area of the urn.
The exact location is not being revealed to prevent the curious from disturbing this unusual domestic arrangement.
