Canada Goose rescue orillia


Canada Goose on the ice.

This is not a happy ending but a humane ending.
Canada goose was one the ice with block of ice on foot.
We captured her using net and rope. We did  not go one ice as it is dangerous.

Jen and her husband took goose to Toronto Wildlife Centre.
She had serious injuries and had to be put down,
Thankfully she was warm, comfortable and had love and food. We knew what the ending may be but we had to try.

 First look at the goose with ice on foot
 Using a net and rope method
 Bob threw the net and was lucky to get him first try. 
 I was holding the rope so we could pull him to shore.
 Captured on shore we rushed him to the car to wrap him in towels and blankets.
