Second darted goose rescued in Vacaville

A big thanks should go out to the good samaritan in Vacaville who rescued a goose with a dart in its head.

The Graylag goose was rescued by Kyle Fish, 22, Saturday at the Lagoon Valley Park in Vacaville. He was visiting the park with his girlfriend when he noticed the goose and captured it after luring it with food. He waited with the goose at the park until Animal Control officers could transport the injured bird to the International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) in nearby Cordelia.

There’s a $2,500 reward being offered to help find the person responsible for darting the goose. This is the second goose in the past few months found in the park area to be found with a needle like dart in its head.
