An unsuccessful and rather unfortunate hunting expedition, perhaps?

I mean, what else could explain a goose with an arrow through its neck that's just wandering about town in Amherst? Seriously.

You would think the goose is in a bunch of pain and honestly, maybe it is but it's been walking and flying around Amherst for a good, solid month with the thing sticking through it acting like everything is normal.

Maybe you're asking yourself right now, "okay, well if that's the case, why hasn't anyone done anything about it?" Trust me, people have tried. He keeps getting away! The goose is officially on the loose! People call it in, the searchers follow up on the reports, darn thing gets away! Every single time.

The SPCA suggests that if the goose is seen nesting, that's probably the best time to grab it.
