If you shake it, and kill the embryo inside, they keep sitting on it, but no chicks come. Oh, and the reason why humans are so dastardly and sneaky?
Note the lap dog footprint, bottom centre.
Let’s see if I have this right: 6 weeks of humans lying on the beach to turn their bodies brown in order to improve their recreational mating chances (addled by birth control measures) trumps 46 weeks of geese having access to life? Sometimes humans act as if they were insane. Here’s another picture to put geese, humans and lap dogs into scale…
Notice: No Goose Poop
That’s a pretty big goose. It has half of my footprint. I’m happy to give it that. Meanwhile, I’m left to contemplate a species that is so successful at reproducing that it prevents most reproductive acts from producing offspring in order to support its political hierarchies and has now extended this principle to other organisms on the planet, as if life, somehow, had to be contained in order to support human social, industrial and economic networks…which consist of people lamenting the fact that the earth is dying. Hunh? It’s insane, that’s what it is. So, to clear your mind, some sanity:
