    I have chickens and ducks but not geese. I looked it up and it appears to be a gosling. My son was building a rock structure next to the river and the gosling came running up to him. We searched up and down the river for other geese and birds and found none. The river was high and quite fast so we think it must have been swept down river from it's family. It is fuzzy, no feathers starting so must be very young. Don't want to keep it just want to find someone or someplace who will take it in. Located in central Washington. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you! Found the Washington thread and posted in there. Someone pointed me in the right direction over there and I was able to find a vet that takes in wildlife that was about an hour away from me. Dropped him off this afternoon :)

    That is awesome a great ending that could have led to tragedy for the lil gosling. Thank you for helping it. @mnel
