As its owner was moving house, a pet goose was recently sent to a university in Shanghai known for its good natural environment, reported on August 13, 2018.

GuGu the goose was in the prime of its life. The owner, who could no longer care for it, asked if Shanghai Maritime University could take the goose in through China’s social networking site Weibo.

The university posted a response through their official account on Weibo, saying that they had decided to allow GuGu to join the university gaggle.
