Geese Watch

By Patrick Vickery

Geese often guarded whisky distilleries in the past, you know, providing an effective alarm system with integral deterrent (pecking) should anyone attempt to make off with a barrel or two, although in more recent times they have fallen out of favour due to their complete disregard for the notion of intent.

Intent to steal whisky - deserving of a good peck.

Non intent to steal whisky – still deserving of a good peck.

Not pleasant. On a par with oscillating dog ears. Give me a casual cow any time!
