Can't Fight Cupid's Arrows

Goose falls for a duckChances are slim that a goose would fall for a duck, it'd be as if a dog fell for a cat. Despite the slim chances, a male goose did fall for a female duck in Gloucestershire, South West England. According to the staff of Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, the goose is doing everything he can to woo her, even scaring off any other bird that comes close. 

"I have certainly never seen anything like it in my time here. I'm not sure whether he thinks he is a mallard or whether he thinks she is a bar-headed goose, but I guess they do say love is blind," said one of the wardens. 

The goose is following his feathery companion everywhere. The warden thinks that she'd fly away if she didn't like the goose.
