A visit from the emperor, goose that is


This emperor goose was sent to us from Cold Bay. After x-rays it was determined its wing was broken by it being gun shot. It is illegal to hunt this species due to it being listed as near threatened.

Todd and Cindy were able to operate and place a pin. Give it a few weeks and we'll see how it turns out.
The emperor goose breeds around the Bering Sea, mostly in Alaska, but also in Kamchatka, Russia. It is migratory, wintering mainly in the Aleutian Islands.
