A couple of weeks ago, residents around Lake Tuscaloosa noticed that a well-known goose who lives on the lake was injured. Specifically, “Loosie Goosie,” as she’s known to many, had been shot with a bow and arrow – and she was still swimming, arrow intact.
But there’s great news: Loosie Goosie was rescued on Monday, thanks to the efforts of the Tuscaloosa Police Department’s Lake Patrol Officers and area resident Tammy Tierce. She was taken to May Veterinary Clinic, where she was treated for the injury. Tierce will care for Loosie – and says she’s expected to fully recover from her injury.
