The Fall River Canada goose shot by an arrow, and that eluded animal control, underwent surgery Thursday to remove the arrow.

According to Dr. Priya Patel of New England Wildlife Center’s – Cape Branch in Barnstable, the goose is gradually improving, but not out of the woods yet.

“After the surgery to remove the arrow, the goose’s vitals are slowly improving but the prognosis is still guarded at this time.”

Authorities are still looking for information on the incident.

    SCUM, pure SCUM that could do such a thing to a defenseless animal. I am thankful the Wildlife Preservation found this goose and it was able to be taken care of. Thank you to all involved.
