Family of geese reportedly struck by vehicle and left on road

Innisfail RCMP turn to public for more information

Innisfail RCMP are investigating after complaints of a vehicle plowed into a family of geese near Cook Lake, northeast of Innisfail.

Staff Sgt. Chris Matechuk, with the Innisfail RCMP, said the detachment received two complaints last week – one on July 19th and the other on July 21st. Reports from a witness indicate they saw a vehicle drive through a family of geese at about 6:40 a.m. on July 19th.

“They reported that they saw the vehicle drive through the family of geese and didn’t stop and kept going,” he said. “We got a subsequent complaint identifying they found a family of geese dead along the same area.”

Matechuk said they spoke with Fish and Wildlife officials to alert them to the situation.

“We’re looking for any information on anyone else who may have been a witness or who may have obtained a correct license plate number,” he said, adding the geese were found on RR 281, on the west shoreline of Cook Lake.

Anyone with information about this incident can call the Innisfail RCMP at 403-227-3341.
