Canada Goose

Even the snow has not stopped people from going to great lengths to care for injured wildlife! Today, we received this Canada Goose that was found near Claytor Lake suffering from eye trauma and a leg injury. Canada Geese are long-lived and their lifespan can extend into their 30s! One subspecies of Canada Goose, known as the Giant Canada Goose, is the largest type of goose in the world and was declared extinct until a tiny population was found in Missouri in the 1950s. Thank you to Kim for transporting this patient!
