Goose Stabbed, Left On Door Of Humane Society

For the second day in a row, the London Humane Society is appealing to the public for help after another dead animal was found with clear signs of abuse.

A volunteer dog-walker discovered a dead goose with several stab wounds on the doorstep of the London Humane Society Tuesday afternoon.

Judy Foster, executive director of the humane society, says they ruled out other possible causes for the injuries the goose sustained.

“Was this injury sustained in a way that it appears to have been abused but was in fact an injury by another animal? Was the animal hit by a car? In both cases going through the thought process I’m like ‘if it were hit by a car there would be this, and this,’ and those injuries are not present. Same with an animal attack,” says Foster. “Those are the kinds of things we ask ourselves in investigations to come to the conclusion that we believe it is animal abuse.”

The Ministry of Natural Resources has been called in to help with the investigation.

Foster made a similar ask for information on Tuesday after a cat was found mutilated in Springbank Park. A person walking in the park made the chilling discovery on Sunday.

“It raises concerns because this is the second example in very few hours were the animal was left to obviously be found after apparently being abused,” says Foster.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the London Humane Society or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
