This picture was taken by Alex Graves during a gap in the rain in picturesque Polperro yesterday afternoon.
He spotted the man walking the bird while visiting his in-laws and said he thought it was just brilliant.
Dad-of-two, Alex, from Truro, said: “We often visit Polperro to see the family and I have never, ever seen this before. I was getting the kids out of the car and had them in my hands when I spotted the chap with this goose on a lead walking through the street. I quickly put them in the house and said ‘I need to get a picture of this before he walks away’.
“I’m sure there are people in Polperro who know who it is, but for us as a family, especially the kids, it was just adorable to see.
“The bird was calmly walking along beside the chap on the lead; it wasn’t getting in a flap at all.
“He could have taken it in and is nursing it back to health or it might be a pet. Either way I would say this only happens in Cornwall.”
