THERE are fears two geese and a ducky friend have been kidnapped from the Maylands Peninsula.
Local resident Carolyn Tretheway says it’s unusual for all three to disappear together just before Christmas, particularly as their usual haunt isn’t a regular thoroughfare.
“They are friendly birds who actually hang out as ‘friends’ together,” Ms Tretheway says.
“They are very protective of each other and the two large geese can defend themselves well and would not be easy to grab, unless they were sleeping and caught unawares.
“Knowing their personalities and that all three of them have disappeared at the same time, I believe this was planned. I think someone has thought they will have them for Christmas and could be keeping them on a property somewhere.”
Ms Tretheway says she’s hopeful the birds are still alive and hopes the attention will flush out the kidnapper. If you’ve seen the birds hit, http://www.facebook.com/MaylandsCommunity
