Maybe that's a more modern interpretation of the kosher rules, or the fattened livers in Bohemia were the result of natural gorging behavior rather than gavage.
Why wouldn't it be kosher? Liver is liver is liver - as long as the 
blood is koshered out and the nerves removed. And believe me, a goose 
will eat as long as there is food available, greedy little beggers that 
they are. [Actually, they act like a bunch of 5 year old kids ... and 
will try to eat anything that resembles food!]
