Whole Foods protecting geese

It happened in Littleton, Colorado, where employees in a Whole Foods grocery story noticed a pair of geese hovering around the same little patch of grass in the parking lot. Employees kept watching for several days, and sure enough, three eggs appeared.

The store called wildlife authorities who advised against moving the mother goose. So instead, Whole Foods became a babysitter for the Canada goose brood. They erected a barricade and posted signs to deter anyone from approaching the geese for feeding them. They added a kiddie pool with fresh water each day. The Whole Foods staff can hardly wait for the eggs to hatch. "We have the police and animal control on call," says team leader Tony Nemec, "so if she needs to cross Wadsworth Street with her little ones, they will guide her through."
