Many years ago just before Christmas I spotted "Free Range Geese" in Central 
Market, Adelaide.  I had often criticised turkey and duck to my wife as being 
too dry and lauded the virtues of a juicy goose, so I bought it.  It was huge.
We stuck it in the oven and waited.  A the appointed time we pulled it out and 
stared in disbelief.  An enormous skeleton, a few grams of meat like leather 
and a pool of fat in the pan.  The the penny dropped.  "Free Range Geese"
Certainly - Magpie Geese from the NT!!!
No we didn't eat it.  We couldn't.  We minced what was left and eat something 
I suspect Canada Geese would be the same.
