Ken, looks like a bad break. The goose could end up as a snack for a gator. The photos show the break and DDLs the details.

I have a feeling the gators will make short work of him. Thanks for looking, Greg.

There are wildlife rescue agencies that are always willing to help. The goose could be rescued and placed in a zoo or compound. Just sayin!


I don't think they would go to the effort of saving one goose out of hundreds. Hunting season is still in progress for geese down here and he may have even been shot. The wildlife services patrol this spot often during each day and I am sure they have seen this goose as it is swimming alone away from the large concentration in the reserve. It would be nice if they did, but I don't see it happening. Thanks for looking, Donkas1946.

He seemed otherwise healthy. Maybe he has a little time left. Thanks for commenting, Bill.

It may heal but he'll never fly. And not being able to fly will make him easy prey. Thanks for looking, AzPicLady.

A great example of the "Survival of the Fittest".

A Canada goose with a bad wing has survived for a half dozen years in our marina. The bald eagles sit in a tree above and never bother it.

It could happen here but I don't think gators are as forgiving, wbchinook.

I was watching this goose swimming and feeding when I noticed it dragging a wing. I don't think it will be migrating back up north.


Sad.

Did you try calling a wildlife agent or animal rescue?
