Chinese Police use Geese squads

Did you know inside of China, Chinese police use geese instead of dogs? Police in rural parts of China’s Xinjiang Province are no longer turning to dogs to stand guard at police stations at night. They’re using geese instead. Apparently, a recent report indicates that a person tried to break into a police station to retrieve a confiscated motorcycle, when the geese noticed the person and sounded the alarm to notify the police. Geese have amazing hearing, so they could alarm the sleeping guards if anything happened when on night duty. Geese also have better eyesight than humans do, so they can see things that humans can’t. The barnyard varieties of geese are very loud, vocal, and territorial. Which is a very good thing because they need to have some sort of self defense, and they need to be able to alert others. Geese, would not turn on a cop of its own cop. If somebody new joins the police force I could see a goose being cautious around him, but sense everyone is wearing the same uniform that might help the geese determine weather its on his side. I thought it was pretty interesting that they use geese inside of china instead of dogs like we do here in america. I learned that geese can actually be a great protection service!
