Goose treated for arrow wound to be released
BATON ROUGE - The LSU vet school said a goose found shot with an arrow is now well enough to be released back into the wild.
The school plans to release the goose Thursday at noon into the City Park Lake.
Veterinarians said someone spotted the goose with an arrow sticking out of its side on Jan. 29 and contacted the School of Veterinary Medicine. East Baton Rouge Animal Control brought the goose in, and veterinarians said the arrow had missed all its vital organs.
Vets removed the arrow and treated the goose with antibiotics and pain medication until it was well enough to fly again.
UPDATE - An earlier version of this story said the goose would be released Wednesday. WBRZ regrets the error.
