OLYMPIA — A Washington state wildlife rescue group is asking people in the Olympia area to help watch for a Canada goose with an arrow through its breast.

Workers with the state and the For Heaven’s Sake Wildlife Rescue in a small boat tried to grab the bird Wednesday afternoon in Capitol Lake, but it flew away.

The Olympian reports they were surprised the bird could take to the air with an arrow through its body.

For Heaven’s Sake’s director says the goose is likely still in the area. Searchers hope to find it and take it to a veterinarian.

Photos of the bird indicate the arrow entered its right side and went out its left.
