BAY CITY, Mich. -- Wildlife officials in Michigan have removed an arrow from a Canada goose more than two months after the injured bird was spotted, leaving the once-easily recognized bird to blend in once again with its fellow geese.
Officials initially decided not to remove the arrow, because the bird was able to fly without difficulty. The DNR again came across the goose at the end of June when biologists were banding geese and decided to take action.
Michigan DNR Wildlife Outreach Technician Holly Vaughn said the goose appeared to be OK afterward, and said it "just went on its merry way."
