Don't know if this was already posted, i searched for it but couldn't find it, so here it goes.

Not a pet per say, but that fact turns this behavior even more special!

Solo Canada goose followed Andre Bachman's truck for 10 kilometres to nearby lake



Forester Andre Bachman was driving his pickup along a country road near Edson, Alta., west of Edmonton, when he saw the goose flying overhead in the opposite direction.

Then, he noticed the bird turn and follow his truck.

Curious about the goose's behaviour, Bachman stopped and the goose landed right behind his truck.



Since the bird showed no inclination to fly away, Bachman decided to try leading it to water, and started driving to Shining Bank Lake, about 10 kilometres away.



I've seen goose's follow cars in the past, but never with this level of commitment... As if the goose is trying to communicate somehow. One think is for certain, this guy must have a real positive energy for this animal not feel threatened.

Good simple deeds like this make me smile.

I watched a docu about a bunch of film makers who spent months training geese to fly alongside vehicles like that

I loved it, but it was probably a domesticated goose, hope it survives

I wish one would fly with my car. That would brighten my day

I have no idea, if i had to guess, i'd say he was probably to weak to follow the group he was in and was left behind.

Just a guess though.

Further proving everything from Canada is nicer. Where I live the geese will come at you hissing trying to peck you if you get to close.
Great find!

Ahah, can't argue with that logic.

Good old Canada.
