fataly injured goose

  1. I have three geese (one gander, two females), and this year one of the females started beating up the other during egg laying. We isolated the female being picked on, and when things calmed down a little, we let her sleep with the others last night. Well, I guess it was too soon, because when my dad went down this morning, she was stuck in the wire. I haven't seen her yet, but it sounds like her neck is bent (perhaps broken?), one leg is injured, and the rest of her is generally a mess. Is there any hope for her? And if her neck was broken, would she die right away, orcould she still be alive a few hours later? Thanks.
