One time I was driving doing 50 on the highway, and all of a sudden I saw what looked like debris on the road, like a spread-out pile of rocks. What was even more unusual was that they were moving. WTF? Thinking nothing of it, I proceded, until I got closer. They werent rocks. They were 50 some odd baby ducks crossing the road. I mean fresh out of egg tiny. It was too late for me to break, but I slowed down anyway. They went right under my car in between the tires. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw that the bunch of them were still moving along. I was relieved.

you might be right, but i dont think ive EVER seen a goose here during the winter, i think hes just a lazy bastard, or he wanted to die, who knows
Didja just move here or something? I've only lived here for 10 years, but it only took me a couple to realize the damned things never leave. Too many soirces of heat and food in The Metro

I understand feeling bad for killing it, but I also want to thank you for cutting the population down by one...
