    RIP Thomas the bisexual bispecies goose

    Important news this week from my country...

    Thomas the blind, bisexual goose to be buried next to partner Henry the swan:

    A love affair that spanned decades and species is at an end.

    Thomas the blind, bisexual goose died last week, and will be buried next to his partner of nearly 30 years, a black swan named Henry, on the edge of the Kāpiti lagoon that the pair called home.

    ...[Thomas and Henry] had about 18 happy gay years together.... [then female swan Henrietta turned up] and Henry paired up with [the] female swan but Thomas stuck around, even helping to raise the inevitable babies.

    The feathered threesome delighted visitors who watched the "the eternal triangle" raise 68 cygnet over the years with Thomas fulfilling the role of doting uncle.



    [Thomas] was left heartbroken after Henry's 2009 death and could be heard occasionally crying for him... [while] Henrietta just flew off with another bird...

    The arrival of a couple of female geese finally saw Thomas father his own babies only to have them stolen by another goose...

    Failing eyesight and attacks by swans saw Thomas rehomed to the Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust in 2013, where he spent his final years eating corn and raising orphaned cygnets.

    ..."We had about 100 people turn up for Henry['s funeral] and I wouldn't be surprised if the same happened for Thomas."​

    A cute and sad story.

    Awwww, but it is still just a story.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
