A love story...

... but it's very  unusual though!

Video source: CBS

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. -- At age 2, Kyle the Canada goose is already a social media star.
With over 42,000 followers on Instagram, her human Mike Jivanjee of Lake Oswego has trouble keeping up with all the celebrities that follow her account (Ronda Rousey is one of them).

Kyle was a week-old gosling when Jivanjee and his friends saw her struggling to swim in the lake. They scooped her up and found her mother and flock of siblings. But the momma goose shunned the runt, and pushed Kyle away.

Mike took her in, named her after a friend who had moved away, and Kyle has stayed close by ever since. She hangs out on his lake front property, has free reign to come into his house, and hops on the back on his ski boat every day.

Videos and photos of Kyle on board the boat, watching TV and flying alongside the boat have gone viral. It's a strong bond formed with Jivanjee. After all, geese mate for life.

    1. Birds are so remarkable! Glad you enjoyed the story, BW!

  2. It is amazing, the bonds that form between the human world and the animal kingdom. God bless those who would care enough to rescue an abandoned gosling.

    1. I know exactly what you mean - I truly pity people that don't like animals. (except spiders) :o)
