Someone shot a goose with an arrow – again: London police
For the second time this year, a goose has been found shot by an arrow in a London, Ont. park, confounding police officers and animal rescue workers. 

The goose was found by London police foot patrol officers off a bike path in Gibbons Park near Grosvenor Street at around 11:20 a.m. Sunday. 

It's the second such incident in two months. In mid January, officers were called to Springbank Park after people found a goose shot with an arrow there. The arrow was removed and the goose was taken in by an animal rescue agency. 

"I don't think citizens need to be concerned for their safety, but it's obviously very concerning to know this is happening," said Const. Jessica Kalita. 

"This is the second incident of this type. We want people to stay cognizant in the parks and paths. If you see anything you deem suspicious, call London police or Crime Stoppers with information."

London police are appealing to the public for information after a goose was shot with an arrow, the second incident of its kind so far this year.

Foot patrol officers found the injured goose near a bike path in Gibbons Park near Grosvenor Street at about 11:20 a.m. Sunday.

The goose is the second police have found shot by an arrow in 2019. The first was found Jan. 17 in Springbank Park. The arrow was removed and the bird was taken in by an animal rescue agency.

Police ask anyone with information about either case to call (519) 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
