Those three geese were real big, they were flying towards our car from a pond on side of the road. They made the other geese in the pond look like
babies. They looked like canadian geese, but maybe there are swans or something that look like Canadian geese that I do not know about.
I have only seen about five huge birds around here in my life. They all had about nine to ten foot wingspans,
Usually a big bird will have about a six foot wingspan around here. So these birds caught my attention.
It is possible for there to be a genetic line of any animal that has a growth factor stick on and increases the size of the animal. In humans that
creates giantism, abnormally big people. In deer, it creates trophy bucks. I have seen a huge buck, the biggest deer I have shot was a ten pointer
that was around two hundred thirty pounds when dressed, but that was nothing compared to a big buck I and others saw one year, it must have been about
a three hundred pounder dressed weight, I had my sights on a huge doe, trying to grow horns on that doe when I heard it nearby and I froze, it must
have been a twelve pointer or more with a massive spread on the horns. The footprints were the size of moose prints but definitely deer. When I got
back to the meeting area the guys would not believe me but one of the hunters that were camping there said they saw this on the power line and all the
campers took off. I actually tracked those two deer to the power line and it circled back and went within fifty feet of their campsite, crossing the
road and going the other way.
I froze when I saw that deer, I have never seen a deer that big. I hope it got to breed for years to spread it's genetics so there were lots of huge
deer in that area.
Mutations can occur in animals that make them huge, usually it runs in families, but sometimes it just requires two mutations to line up that are non
dominant to occur. So big people pop up randomly because those genes are not really rare, but they are not common. Seeing three of those huge geese
together was not something a person would expect to see in a lifetime.
No bull, I did not measure their wingspan, just guessed at what they might be using references, they probably were a minimum of nine feet, but since
there were three of them one had to be at least ten feet. one was flying side ways, it did not seem to have a swan neck, I assumed because of their
markings they were canadian geese. I spent a real lot of time out in nature, more than most people have, I have seen some weird stuff in my life.
