BUFFALO, N.Y., April 12 (UPI) -- Witnesses said an adult deer has taken over the role of protecting a mother goose preparing to hatch her eggs in New York state as a single parent.
Locals in Buffalo said the goose, a species known to mate for life, lost her male partner and would have been left defenseless while protecting her eggs in an empty cemetery urn if a deer had not stepped in to guard the expectant mother, WGRZ-TV, Buffalo, reported Tuesday.
Passersby said the deer places itself between the goose and approaching humans or animals. The deer was once seem to take up a protective stance to ward off a barking dog, they said
This shows that cross-species marriages should be recognized by law < /junk science conclusion of the day >
The title of this thread isn’t confusing enough.

OOps. didn’t see it that way, guess you were not a fan of Rocky and Bullwinkle, as many weren’t.
So, I’m putting in a request the mods change the name to Deer becomes goose’s protector, the original name of the story, if possible.
Lol, thanks for that;)
No one in New York has cameras, not even on their cell phones. Maybe they don’t even have cell phones in NY. /s
Still, a good story.

I might mention it has already been posted as a thread on FR at least once.
How can anyone NOT be a fan of Rocky and Bullwinkle?
Where but UPI or AP or any of the rest of the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms could this be written with a straight face?
I dunno. How could Picasso paint those portraits with a straight face?
There’s a place for God’s creatures right beside the potatoes and peas. Mmmmm...good.
