Gates Goose Sanctuary?

The Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) and GreenLaw have petitioned the University of Washington to designate the terrace of William H. Gates Hall to be a Canada Goose sanctuary.

SALDF recently held a pet photo contest to raise money for a dog shelter. "After that effort," said SALDF president Rachel Swanson, "We thought we could do even more to improve the UW Law community's relationship with non-human animals. What better way than having a flock among us?"

When local geese got wind of this proposal, they organized a march in support. Through an interpreter provided by SALDF, a spokesgoose said, "We can be Leaders for the Global Common GoodTM too!"
