We alerted our responders. Sammarye, in Sunnyvale, was quick to reply. She met Rebecca on scene.
The goose appeared to have a swollen leg, but was still flighted, although weak. Rebecca first tried coaxing the bird close, but it was too wary. Next, the team tried a single snare, but that didn't work well, so they decided to try the Drive By.
They placed a few handfuls of grain to preoccupy the goose. With Samm at the wheel and Rebecca crouched inside the back of the van with both doors open, they made a couple of passes. With each pass, the goose seemed to get a little more comfortable with the vehicle.
On the third pass, Rebecca lunged, bagging the goose in a large hoop net. Samm stopped the immediately and helped process the large bird from the net and into a crate.
The bird was transported to the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley for treatment.
UPDATE: According to WCSV, the goose was dehydrated and notably lethargic. Her slight wing droop leads them to suspect lead poisoning. They expect lab results early next week.
