Hi, my name is Gilbert
And I am around 8 years old and have been at the Sanctuary for 5 of those. When I came here I was a bad lad attacking everyone including the sheep and the dogs, biting off bits of skin and fleece, everyone except volunteer Kirsty, ran for the hills as soon as I appeared. Well, as you can guess this didn’t make me exactly popular and I suppose it must have been the reason why I was sent here in the first place. I certainly met my match in Kirsty and most days I am a good lad now, this is a great place to hang out, even though the other geese ignore me, well they are all girls after all and I’ve never been big on them, so I have my own penthouse accommodation. I’m not allowed out on Open Days, I suppose you can’t blame them for that, even Joanna Lumley may not have been impressed being chased around the field, and she is a very kind lady. So if you want a feisty bird to adopt you need look no further! It’s ME you are after!
