Re: Dealing with aggressive ganders:

Sorry, but I don't quite understand. If he's now keeping his distance from YOU, then surely that's good progress and so no further reason to consider him "for the pot" is there ? Maybe I've got this wrong, but it seems to me the only problem is the dog's presence - not only does the gander have to d...
