There seem to be a great many goose down filled garments and bedding articles out there. As I was laying under my goose down comforter last night I found myself idly wondering what happens to the geese themselves? There seems to be many more down items on the market than the available goose meat in my grocer's meat case would explain. I don't think they're "shorn" like sheep, and goose hunting doesn't seem to be a likely explanation.
Maybe that's what the cat food flavor "Super Supper" is made out of?
Isn't goose supposed to be good eats?
