I am Daphné

Daphne arrived at SAFE with her (adoptive) sister Delilah in early June 2020. They were released from an industrial hatchery where goslings are usually sold a few days after birth to become meat, foie gras pate or plucked for their down and feathers. But a good soul brought them to SAFE where they grew up pampered, loved and free to do whatever they want with their days. They are African domesticated geese who do not fly. Despite our best efforts and demonstrations of swimming in the pond, Delilah and Daphne have refused to stay there where they could have made the acquaintance of our resident gander Samson who prefers nature and refuses to come up to the barn. They follow humans happily enough to the water but run back behind them to the barn so as not to be left alone so far from home. And yes, home is the barn and their little wading pool where they snuggle up against each other and float peacefully until they fall asleep. They spend their day wandering around the sanctuary, crossing all the enclosures talking endlessly to each other like two very busy gossips.

But what they love most is running to the sanctuary entrance gate as soon as they hear someone coming throwing the newcomers in a panic at the sight of this team of well-meaning guards. They make a hellish noise, honking and tugging at the shoelaces of these poor innocent souls who have no other resource but to take refuge to find relief from their attention.
