Goose frozen to wet sand rescued at Lake Michigan beach

Conservation officers in Indiana responded to a Lake Michigan beach to rescue a Canada goose that became frozen to the wet sand.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement said in a Facebook post that conservation officers responded to the edge of Lake Michigan at Indiana Dunes State Park early Monday on a report of a goose in distress.

The officers enlisted the help of Porter Volunteer Firefighters to assist with dislodging the goose from the icy sand.

“The bird was then transported to a local licensed wildlife rehabilitation and veterinarian’s facility for treatment,” the post said.
