Canada goose wounded by arrow is rescued on Sylmar golf course

A Canada goose wounded by an arrow was rescued Wednesday at the El Cariso Golf Course in Sylmar -- with the arrow still attached.

Rescuers pulled up beside the goose in a golf cart and captured it with a net.

The rescuers then took the goose to the East Valley Animal Shelter in Van Nuys for treatment.

"It'll be very happy once they remove the other part of the arrow," said Armando Navarrete of Los Angeles County animal services.

Officials had tried to help the bird last week when the goose was spotted in Pacoima, but had no luck.

Navarrete said the case showed the dangers of shooting arrows.

"Any type of projectile is not a toy," he said. "Today it's a bird. Tomorrow it could be a dog, and then a person."
