FAQ: How long do geese live?

The year is 1974, and in the picture above I am feeding our first two geese, George and Martha.  They died in 1996 at the claws of a predator.  George and Martha were adult geese when my parents got them in 1973.  My best guess is that they lived about 24 years.  It’s estimated that domestic geese, when well-cared for can live 25-35 years.
