Pet goose goes wild at local lake

Print Article

The Kalispell Police Department received complaints that a woman took her pet goose swimming in a lake and it attacked and bit several children. She explained the goose couldn’t wear his harness because he was shedding. The parent of one of the children asked her to leave, but she apparently refused and “went back out to swim with the goose in the lake.” The caller was informed that geese can’t transmit rabies and the incident doesn’t violate state law or county ordinance. But the police advised, “she cannot harbor a goose in the city limits of Kalispell.”
