My favorite Golf Course Owner, unfortunately who Died in the 2000's , revered these Creatures.
There were two Ponds on the Front side and also a Major river. On the Back side, there were an additional two Ponds and a Creek feeding into aforementioned river.
IF You Were a Member of the course ... You Knew that The Snappers were Precious.
Take a Snapper ... Never a Member again ... Have a guest of a Member take a Snapper ... Same Thing.
Other words ... Leave them alone ...
Best Geese defenders. Just watch the Goslings disappear mysteriously behind the Mother Goose in April.
