From the AP:

DENVER — A Canada goose is recovering after wandering around Denver for more than a month with an arrow lodged in its chest.

The arrow was removed and the goose was given antibiotics after volunteers with the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center finally caught the bird Thursday.

The veterinarian treating the goose says it is doing well since the surgery. The Denver Post reports the goose will be released back into the wild once it heals.

The goose was first spotted in Denver’s Washington Park on Feb. 12. It was captured at Garland Park after managing to avoid several attempts by Colorado Division of Wildlife officers to catch it.
