Letter To The Editor: Farewell To Homer

By BILLY RIFE
Los Alamos

As a regular local visitor to our Peggy Pond, we are saddened by witnessing the last presence of Homer the beautiful goose at the pond.

As we arrived this December 26 morning around 9:30 we saw an animal control officer plus a local county truck facing the duty of removing the body of the male goose. The obviously sad female animal control officer carried the dead goose to her truck and placed the carcass in the truck bed.

The remaining female goose (Edna) had been faithfully circling her dead mates body in the water nearest the North end of the pond. She backed away while they removed Homer’s carcass. After everyone left, she returned to that same spot and circled around as if waiting for Homer’s return … so sad.
