When Mike Jivanjee rescued a tiny gosling drowning in Lake Oswego in Oregon, he didn’t know he just got himself a BFF. Jivanjee named the little goose Kyle, took her home and planned to release her. However, Kyle fell madly in love with her owner, and hasn’t left his side in two years… And just when Jivanjee tries to tell her it’s over, he finds her right by his house, lovingly waiting for her saviour.
‘I’ve tried to get rid of her, you know. I’ve driven her miles away and then left her in the middle of nowhere and when I come back she’s already home before me, so there’s not a lot we can do.’
Apparently, the ten-pound Canadian goose even gets defensive and jealous around Jivanjee’s women. ‘When girls come around and she senses they’re a threat, she lets them know. She’s smart enough to know actually who the threats are and who they aren’t,’ Jivanhee said.
While the owner plays it tough and unavailable, he revealed he is just as smitten with Kyle as the goose is with him. And even if he leaves her somehwere and tells her to get lost, it’s more like a play to encourage the birdie to exercise.
