He’s one lucky duck or rather, goose.
A teacher’s aid at East Central School rescued a goose egg that would later become a class pet. The aid’s dog almost made a snack of the unborn baby goose, but she managed to wrestle it free. Unable to find a nest, she brought the egg to teacher Pam Grassick as her class was attempting to hatch chicks.
The class named the gosling Lucky, as he’s lucky to be alive. Ever since he hatched, Grassick has had a constant companion.
