Interspecies love : A deer & a goose

BUFFALO, N.Y.—An unusual springtime friendship between a deer and a nesting goose appears to have blossomed inside a cemetery in Buffalo, N.Y. For the past week or so, the deer has been standing near an urn where the goose has taken up residence, positioning itself between the urn and any passing car or foot traffic.

There is no mate around the goose and and it seems that the deer has taken over the job of protecting the nest.
