In New Zealand died 40-year-old goose-bisexual who has raised 68 of Lebeda. This was reported by the newspaper the Daily Mail.
Gus Thomas, who lived in the Wyman lagoon in Waikanae avoided the society of females, and instead chose the black Swan to Henry. They lived together for 24 years, until his lover met a female Swan named Henrietta, and had not gone to her. However, Thomas did not look for a new love, but instead for six years helped the pair to raise offspring, during this time, they had 68 of Lebeda.
An unusual relationship Thomas had attracted the attention of all the local bird lovers. In 2009, however, Henry died, and Henriette soon found a new male and flew with him. Left alone, Thomas found his mate and brought her children, but they stole another gander named George.
By 2013, Thomas became blind, and he was sent to the local orphanage for birds. The staff of the institution claim that the goose was able to make friends with other blind birds and, although blind, helped the birds to raise young. Goose will be buried next to Henry Swan in the lagoon, where they have lived most of my life.
