Shame on vandal for killing goslings

What ever happened to Mother Goose and her family, you wonder?

Dear Editor:

What ever happened to Mother Goose and her family, you wonder?

Well, once upon a time they lived happily in the lagoon in Centennial Park, until some reckless, disrespectful person(s) decided to unleash total chaos on them and now two babies are dead and the rest of the family has disappeared, fleeing for their lives. These birds asked nothing more from us other than to be allowed to live and let live. Mother and Father Goose had afforded us the privilege of observing their young, growing and developing in a somewhat natural habitat, which many of us don’t have the luxury of ever witnessing.

Several of us went by daily maintaining a respectable distance so as not to threaten or harm them in any way. Now all is lost.

I think this is a real disgrace to the Ponoka community and its members who cherish wildlife and all it entails. I don’t know who you are who has caused this, but you sure do. I hope you read this and are consumed with guilt and shame of what you have done.

The actions of a few have destroyed it for many.
