in Connecticut discovered three geese dropped off on the
ponds near their property. They did a great job of
luring two of them up into their dog pen (while the dog
wasn't in it) for food and then closed the door on them
until we could arrive.
going to keep an eye out for the third goose, but
haven't seen her in a while.
brought Fred & Ginger back to our place and took them
both to the vet. Ginger has a bum left leg and we needed
to make sure it wasn't infected. As it turns out, our
vet suspects she was hurt from human handling as a
gosling. Her tendon in her "knee" joint slipped, causing
the bones of her joint to slip out of place. Because
those bones don't line up right, she has progressive
arthritis and the lower long bone is hollowing out from
it, making it impossible to pin.
have any room at Majestic, so the family that caught
them has also volunteered to take them to Nevins Farm
MSPCA. Our vet is trying to think of a surgical plan for
Ginger, but in the meantime, this pair needs a safe
place to stay.

Young Jeffrey is looking good and feeling much better!
