FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) – Fergus Falls police have been fielding calls about a live Canadian goose that has a blow dart in its head.

A KBRF-AM report says there have been futile attempts to catch the goose and pull the dart out but no one can get close to it.

Troy Richards is a conservation officer with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. He says as of right now the plan is to leave the goose alone. He says it appears healthy and is able to move around and feed.

Because the goose is mobile, authorities say it’s not clear whether it was shot in Fergus Falls or elsewhere.
