Ottawa firefighters rescue stuck goose on Lemieux Island

It’s a good news story courtesy of local firefighters.

Ottawa Fire Services (OFS) responded to Lemieux Island during the late afternoon of Thursday, May 23, for reports of a goose stuck between two rocks.

According to a resident on scene, the goose had been flapping around, unable to get free, and was scraped up.

OFS says firefighters were able to safely get the goose out from the rocks.

Firefighters also radioed to let dispatchers know “the goose is loose” before clearing the scene.

The news follows a heartbreaking story of a gosling which appears to have been stomped on in Kanata this week.

The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) responded to an animal cruelty call in the 400 block of Hazeldean Road on Thursday morning.

According to police, it appeared as though Canada Geese had laid eggs in the area, and that a suspect had stomped on one of the hatched babies.

An animal cruelty investigation is ongoing.
