They didnt set out to raise a goose. In fact, at first they tried every day to find wild geese or a rehabilitator to help them. Because they couldnt find the help they needed they became determined to just keep the little gosling safe. As Nick and Carol raised the goose they named Lucy, they did a lot of things wrong and would never recommend that someone keep an orphaned gosling. Keeping a wild animal can lead to disastrous results. Lucy, though, transitioned successfully to the wild. They never wanted Lucy to be a pet and are happy to know that she truly is a wild goose.Because of the problems they had finding help, Carol is focused on supporting regional and statewide rehabilitators. Her mission is also to educate children and adults on when to help an animal - this applies to all animals. Too often an animal is separated from its parent by a well-meaning, but uninformed person. This wasnt the case with Lucy, but there are things Nick and Carol could have done differently.The Muziks story is true, and fortunately has a happy ending. They realize they had an ideal situation on a lake and their commitment led to the positive outcome for Lucy. They wouldnt adopt an orphaned goose again, and want to help educate others on what one should really do if this were to happen to them.Carol documented Lucys life through photography, video, and her original illustrations. She is currently sharing their story in her award-winning short film, coloring book, and childrens illustrated story book.
