Goose Shot By Arrow Found Wandering In Brentwood

Posted: Updated:

JOELTON, Tenn. – A Joelton animal rehabilitation center has taken in a Canadian goose someone found out in Davidson County shot with an arrow.

Workers at Walden's Puddle Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center said someone brought the goos to them Sunday.

They said the goose was miraculously doing okay. The arrow did not go through any vital organs. The goose had actually been walking around with the arrow in it for a few days before it was found.

Bettina Bowers-Schwan with the center said a realtor found the goose in a Brentwood home subdivision.

The arrow went through one wing and the entire body, barely missing the other wing.

Bowers-Schwan said the goose was in relatively good health after undergoing surgery to remove parts of the arrow, and was put on antibiotics as a safeguard against infection.

"Once its healed up, it'll have to start getting back into the water and start working on regaining its waterproofing at some point, but this was one really lucky goose," said Bowers-Schwan.

Officials have been trying to figure out who might have done something like this.

Anyone with information should contact the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife.
