Ever thought of having a pet goose?
Anton Mashukov has three of them
Location: Chelyabinsk, Russia
The geese are called Masha, Dasha and Yasha
They have their own room
and share almost the same diet as their owner
(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) PET GEESE OWNER, ANTON MASHUKOV, SAYING:"I was thinking about which animals did not appear as pets. Hens are troublesome to hold, ducks eat a lot, and the geese are beautiful and well-behaved. They are pets with both charisma and temper."
Mashukov brings them to town for several hours every day
and has taught his unusual pets to react to his commands
(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) CHELYABINSK RESIDENT, NO NAME GIVEN, SAYING:"It is a pleasure to see them in the city. So interesting to get in touch with birds. They are so well-behaved. They stopped and waited to cross the road."
