SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — A real-life duck, duck goose has come to Daybreak. It turns out that the goose, who has been terrorizing anyone that comes near it hasn’t been protecting its own eggs, but rather a mama duck and her babies.

Original coverage: Residences of Daybreak are breathing a little easier these days. A goose in the area of Oquirrh Lake has been tormenting people for the past five weeks. Resident John Canaan has been documenting this.
He says the goose is perched up by his house. Every time people walk by or try to approach the goose, it goes nuts.
Just to be fair, this is a mother goose, and she is protecting her eggs.
However, the goose in Daybreak harassed a little girl on a bike. And Canaan had to come to the rescue with an umbrella to let the girl pass by.
“The only thing he doesn’t like is this umbrella,” Canaan said.
Recently, the eggs hatched, and the goose has since loosened her grip on Daybreak.
In honor of the fierce devotion this mother showed for her babies, Canaan wrote a song entitled “What will your life stand for if not love.”
