Goose Picked the Right Garden

A Canada goose landed in a garden in Toms River, New Jersey with an illegal hunting arrow stuck through its chest. The garden happened to belong to retired veterinarian Bernard Levine. Dr. Levine captured the goose and removed the 26-inch arrow, which was lodged six inches deep in the bird's flesh. Then he took the goose to a bird rehabilitation center.
"This is a smart goose," said Dr Levine, 82. "He happened to come into the yard of a veterinarian that could take care of him."

After it recovered at The Raptor Trust, the goose was released last week into a stream in a wooded area on the trust's property.

"It feels great to see him free and liberated, enjoying life the way a goose should," Dr Levine said, as the goose preened and waded downstream.

Levine also removed several air rifle pellets from the goose. Link -via Arbroath
