Beware of Geese

Beware of Geese

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Buyer beware: A pair of Canada geese guarding their nest outside an Illinois furniture store are attacking unwary shoppers, even drawing blood from a few people.
However, the aggressive birds are still good for business at the P.M. Bedroom Gallery store. That’s because the nest is right outside the front window and customers love the show.
The company’s Illinois sales manager, Jeff Cleasby, says the location of the nest lets customers watch the birds safely from inside the store.
Cleasby says he has no plan to do anything to disturb the birds in the Chicago suburb.
“At this point they’re almost like a mascot,” he said.
The eggs are expected to hatch in May and the store has started a contest to name the goslings.
