Officials are investigating after two Canada geese were found impaled with arrows in a community north of Toronto. The injured birds were discovered earlier this week swimming on Lake Couchiching. Both had arrows sticking out of their bodies and underwent surgery to remove them.
It’s unknown how the geese wound up shot, but veterinarians believe they’d been impaled for at least a month.
“It’s a lot of misery to put the bird through. There’s other ways of trying to dissuade geese from coming up on your lawn,”
said Gord Pye, president of the Orillia Fish and Game Conservation Club.
