BATON ROUGE- State officials responded to an injured goose that had been shot with an arrow Sunday.

A passerby said he noticed the Canada Goose with its flock, though this one had an arrow protruding from its wing. It did not appear to be able to fly.

Wildlife and Fisheries agents arrived after the issue was reported and will likely handle any investigation.
The goose was found off Highland Road, between I-10 and Siegen Lane.

"When you see something like that, that's not a responsible person," said Johnny Lucas who saw the injured goose and called authorities. "That's just negligence and it puts a bad atmosphere on people who do care about hunting and taking care of wildlife."

Little information was available about the bird's condition or what happens next.
