Stockton Animal Rescue Works to Save Goose Found Wounded, Shot Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary

STOCKTON - A goose that was found with a serious wing injury and shooting wound was rushed to an emergency vet by Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, a local non-profit animal rescue.

The goose was found in the Quail Lake area along the water line and had a severe wing injury. A Good Samaritan contacted the rescue group after she noticed the animal and its injuries. After an unsuccessful attempt to rescue the wounded animal Tuesday night, the bird was coaxed into care Wednesday morning.

The bird went straight into emergency surgery. The injuries to its wing were described as grotesque and a mystery as to how they happened.

"The bird's wing was dangling and necrotic," said Christine Morrissey with Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary. The cause of the injuries remained a mystery. "We don't know if she was attacked by a dog, had fishing line twisted around her wing or was in a boating accident."

Unfortunately, doctors at the Medical Center for Birds in Oakley decided to amputate the badly injured wing. After further examination, it was also discovered that the bird had been shot with a pellet-type weapon with the projectile lodged in the bird's breast.

Morrissey said the goose is a hybrid bird between a domestic and wild bird which is unnatural. These type of animals are typically the result of domestic animals abandoned in the wild. 

Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit animal rescue group that provides life-long care for abused and neglected farm animals and provides education to the public about human animal care and practices. For more information visit harvesthomesanctuary.org.
