Wildlife official: Dead geese may have been legally hunted

PORT ANGELES (AP) — The 18 dead geese laid out on a beach at a Dungeness-area county park on the north Olympic Peninsula probably were legally hunted, says a Washington Fish and Wildlife official.

The Peninsula Daily News reports that Mike Cenci says photos show that breast meat was harvested from the carcasses and there were no obvious signs of illegal activity.

He says it was “very poor form” to dump the carcasses on a public beach, and there could be some legal issues with that.

Still, he says goose season was open and breast meat is the only useful meat on a wild goose.

The geese were found and reported last weekend by retired Port Angeles Police Detective Ken Fox.
