Canadian Geese at Mon Sheong Court, Richmond Hill

“Extremely successful at living in human-altered areas, Canada geese have proven able to establish breeding colonies in urban and cultivated areas, which provide food and few natural predators, and are well known as a common park species. Their success has led to them often being considered a pest species because of their depredation of crops and issues with their noise, droppings, aggressive territorial behavior, and habit of begging for food (caused by human hand feeding), especially in their introduced range.” ~~¬†wikipedia


“As of late March, there are two Canadian Geese that have situated themselves, and made a home in the flower bed in front of Building B. Earlier on today, there was a resident of Mon Sheong Court Private Care, who attempted to give the goose water. Due to such actions, she was attacked by the gander, and had to be taken to hospital.

The geese themselves are extremely territorial and will attack when they feel uncomfortable. Since it is almost time for their eggs to hatch, they are even more aggressive in that sense. Do not approach the geese for any reason, and keep a distance from them as much as possible. Do not attempt to feed the geese, nor give them water.

MSC Management has already placed caution tape around the nest and such. Be careful and take precaution while walking close to building B.

Be careful. The geese are very aggressive when they are hatching eggs.” __ Jeff Mah Reporting.
