Canada goose survives arrow shot to head

A Canada goose is expected to fully recover after two boys shot the bird through the head with an arrow on July 28 near Plymouth, officials said.

“When they [the Animal Rescue League of Boston] presented the goose to us, he had the shaft of an arrow right through his head,” said Greg Mertz, a veterinarian caring for the goose. “The remarkable thing is the goose was standing, feisty, and could even swallow.”
