BATON ROUGE - The goose that was found struck with an arrow weeks ago at the LSU lakes was released back into the wild today.

Veterinarians successfully removed the arrow from the goose’s body and have been closely monitoring the wound, as well as other superficial injuries. The goose had X-rays, blood tests, and was given antibiotics and medication for pain management.

After several weeks at the LSU VTH, the goose appeared to be healed and was released back at the LSU Lakes.

“The goose recovered very well from the injuries and has continued to improve during hospitalization. We expect a full recovery once it is released,” said Javier Nevarez, DVM, PhD, DACZM, DECZM, professor of Zoological Medicine at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine and one of the attending veterinarians for the goose.
