Help! I found a hurt Goose

He seems to have a broken or slightly bent up wing. He was hanging around pecking at the ground. It doesn't look that bad, but he probably can't fly.

There is normally a large crew of them but this was is all alone. Can I call someone who will come and help him? He is in Hauppauge.

Thanks!

Thanks! A foundation is going to come and get him, hopefully he is still where he was and hasn't gone too far.

I hope he's ok! Is it a Canadian Goose? I believe this is the time of year they can't fly.

That's great. Do you mind sharing who is going to come, this way in case anyone else finds a wounded goose they can call too?

I called the Smithtown animal hospital at 631-360-7575 and they were supposed to take him to the Star Foundation. They took my info and said they'd call if they couldn't find him. They never did so I assumed they got him.

Well I just called them now and they said the guy left to go on a few calls and would be back at 11:30. So no one got him yesterday. I was like are you serious?! I doubt he is in the same spot!

I am so furious. She wasn't positive, about anything, but I am going to call the Star Foundation and see if he is there and if not take a drive and see if I find him again.

His wing didn't look (to my non-Vet eye, all that bad), he otherwise looked normal so I feel like it may not be that hard to fix.

Yes he was a Canadian Goose and recently there has been a crew of like 20-25 of them. Like 6 adults and a bunch of babies, now I see them broken off into groups, like 5 adults here, 4 there and I can't tell who was a baby bc they are all grown...He was all alone though.Chat Icon

ETA - Star Foundation said that I probably only talked to a dispatcher who doesn't know what she is talking about. She said they are very good there and don't ignore calls. So I will try back at 11am. I hope he is there!!!

I hate seeing animals hurt, even if it means they're in real bad shape and will have to be PTS better than suffering or becoming prey.
