A goose named Maria

021311Goose1Their relationship started last spring when Mr. Ehrler discovered that the goose—whom locals call Maria—liked to accompany him on his daily walks around a lake in Echo Park, a neighborhood about two miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

Now each morning, the couple walks the loop of Echo Park Lake together. Maria waddles a few paces ahead with her head stuck up straight and her belly full of tortillas Mr. Ehrler feeds her.

A rehabilitation project will drain the lake to remove debris and droppings from the dozens of geese and ducks that live there. For two years, the lake's fountains will be shut, its center a dry lake bed circled by a fence.

The fate of Maria and her brethren is unknown.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal
