A Canada goose was rescued from Rancho Cordova Thursday where it had a fishing line tangled around one of its legs and a fish hook stuck in one foot.

Following the incident, the rescue sent out a reminder on Facebook calling for fishermen to clean up after themselves to prevent situations like this from happening.

  1. Mary Finelli says:

    Thanks to Gold Country Wildlife Rescue for rescuing this goose!

    Like the goose, fish also suffer fear and pain, as science has shown. They, too, deserve respect and compassion not cruel exploitation.

    Fishing harms so many animals and in so many ways. It isn’t sport, the animals are victims not willing participants. it isn’t sport, it’s cruelty.
