Hello. Today I rescued a graylag goose from terrible owners (who will be reported to animal control). But this goose needs help NOW. The previous owners have a large flock of geese 4 of which have been laying in their field dead for the last 3 days. Ive been monitoring one for a few days and no one seemed to care. Today I jumped their fence and took it and bought it home. Its starving and can hardly walk. It has no external wounds but is very shakey and falls after a few steps. Its beak also looks really weird almost spongey/squishy but its not soft just looks like it. I filled a baby pool for it to swim in and gave it cracked corn and chicken feed (thats the best I had) for tonight and warm place to nest. Has anyone ever seen this before or know what could be wrong with it. The other dead geese makes me suspect that its some type of disease. They are usually well taken care of and perfectly healthy. But it seems that the owners have decided not to take care of the animals (horses, goats, emus, cows, chickens, geese, donkeys). Their property and animals have been going down for a few months now. Could it just be starving to death??? It ate a LOT when I gave it food. They have NO access to water that im aware of.
