A resident called police Friday evening after finding the white pilgrim goose with dart wounds to the stomach and neck near the fifth hole on the Hogan Golf Course at the Trophy Club Country Club, according to Trophy Club Police Department Lt. Tracey Shields.
According to the website Beauty of Birds, the Pilgrim Goose is a domesticated species that is considered endangered, but I don't think there are any federal laws protecting them like endangered species that are actual wildlife.
If not, police may pursue a different charge, such as a violation of a city ordinance that prohibits shooting projectiles, Shields said.
Police are seeking additional information about the incident. If you know anything about it, call 682-831-4650.
