A Happy Ending for Lucy, the Goose

If you saw a baby bird alone on a gravel road baking in the hot sun, what would you do? Would you step on her? Believe it or not, that’s what conservation officers told Diane Vander Weil she should have done instead of rescuing and rehabilitating the abandoned bird. Diane’s story made local & national headlines when Lucy, a Canada Goose, was taken from Diane’s home, in Fort St. James, BC, by federal wildlife officials 2 weeks ago.  We’ll hear from Diane about the ordeal and about Lucy’s return home.
