INDIAN TRAIL, NC (WBTV) - Carolina Waterfowl Rescue is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of who ever is responsible for shooting geese or other animals with arrows in Indian Trail neighborhoods.
The rescue group says several geese have been found shot with arrows in and around the
Sheridan neighborhoods over the last year.
Crystal Gegelman made the first discovery - a dead bird shot in the back with an arrow floating in her subdivision's pond.
"I saw this bright colored object..it was the feathery part of the arrow," Gegelman said. "I thought what kind of evil person would do this to a poor goose."
Since then, wildlife experts say there have been a handful of reports in the Sheridan and Taylor Glen neighborhoods about other injured geese.
