    I belong to a book forum and this was one of the posts there tonight from another member;



    So we come home from work tonight and go out into our garden to get some tomatoes and theres a huge goose out there. It looks like its been shot and its bleeding and it looks like it may also have a broken leg. I've been on the phone for an hour trying to get someone to help me and come get the poor thing. I finally get ahold of a lady in town who gives me the phone # to another lady who that works at a wildlife rehab center BUT the lady lives in Grand Rapids which is 40 minutes from my house AND we've tried to call her repeatedly and have only gotten an answering machine.

    The first lady instructed us to catch the goose and put it in a large box or crate and keep it away from flies so the poor thing doesn't get eaten alive. My hubby is about to go out there and play "chase the goose" so we can get it somewhere clean until the lady calls us back. So what the heck am I supposed to do with a humungous goose until this lady decides to call???



    So, anyone have any ideas? I would like to get this goose some help, but of course that would mean someone would have to be close enough to where she lives to do something.

    I told her to give it water.

    Take it to your closest Veternarian!!
    Some specialize in these type situations--and if not they can get in contact quick with wildlife game specialists that can help this goose!

    Poor thing- hope it can pull through!
