OnFocus – As you make your trips to Wildwood Zoo to see the animals after the winter months, remember to watch out for aggressive geese.

This time of year, geese are laying and incubating their eggs and become very territorial. If you walk too close to a goose nest, there is a possibility that the mother will become aggressive to keep intruders from getting too close to her eggs. During this time that the mothers are incubating their eggs, they rarely, if ever, leave the nest to eat, drink or bathe.

Even if you don’t see a goose nest near where you are walking, there is a possibility that there is a nest nearby. Avoid getting too close to geese until the spring months are over.
