Getting Your Goose

Careful!  Guard goose on duty!

Four jails in Brazil are using geese to help prevent prisoners from escaping.

The prisons, in Sao Paulo’s Paraiba Valey, say no inmates have escaped since they brought in the geese.

The geese are kept in areas just inside the prison wall and make a lot of noise whenever anyone goes near them.

Idalecio Pereira Campos, director of Tremembe Prison, told Terra Noticias Populares: “When I was a child there were wild geese that would run after me on a nearby farm.

“That is where I got the idea from, I thought that the geese would do great in the prison, and they do!”

Anyone who has been chased by a goose can attest to the fact that they aren’t so cute and cuddly when they get riled up.

    I always wanted to enjoy the summer in a clean grass but every time I lay down on the grass there was always geese poo everywhere. Therefore I decided to make a profit out of it and now I sell products to deter geese from golf courses and public parks at
