Goose roundup
local picture
About 20 local volunteers helped division of wildlife officials round up and band 312 goslings and roughly 100 adult Canada geese Tuesday during the annual goose roundup on Grand Lake. They used a helicopter, shown at left, vehicles and foot power to herd the geese into temporary pens before transporting them to the wildlife area where they were banded. The geese are checked for health and sex, and the information is used by the division to set hunting bag limits and hunting season dates, said Wildlife Management Supervisor Dave Kohler this morning. Neither the goslings, which do not yet have flight feathers, nor the adults, which have molted, can fly during this time of the year.
