LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rescuers tried to seize a goose that was impaled by an arrow.

The Los Angeles Times reports the animal control officers failed Wednesday to rescue the Canada bird, but they did watch as it appeared to jettison the arrow and fly out of reach.

The rescue attempt was the latest of several over three weeks.

Los Angeles County Dept. of Animal Care and Control public information officer Don Barre says, “We’re happy that the arrow has fallen out. It’s the best possible outcome.”

The distressed goose had been spotted Dec. 1 at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas. The arrow had lodged in the bird’s shoulder and neck tissue at a 45-degree angle.
