For the concerned people in Port who called us about the Canada Goose in distress
on Sunday, January 8th, we thought it would be nice to update them about him.
On Sunday, January 8th we received phone calls from concerned villagers of Port
Stanley about a Canada Goose in distress by the boat launch. The goose’s wing appeared
injured and had appreciably become compromised with a large amount of ice formation
on it, preventing him from being able to fly, swim or navigate. Through efforts
of Another Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation volunteers and neighbours, the goose was
successfully rescued, triaged at Beavercreek Animal Hospital and then taken to Salthaven
Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Centre for treatment and hopefully recovery.
From radiographic imaging and consultation, it is believed the goose had been shot
by a pellet gun.
If you find an injured wild animal or bird, please call Another Chance Wildlife
Rehabilitation 519-868-1937. For more information please visit
