A Canada goose is living its best life at a Winnipeg car wash, and nobody can catch it

As reported by NICK FARIS |


Hawkeye staff rounding up geeseThe chase is on in Winnipeg... for one lonely Canada Goose who has decided to take up residence at a quite comfy and logical place (at least, from the bird's perspective) - a car wash, offering water and heat, as well as plenty of company and treats from patrons and local visitors. Apparently, the bird does not mind vehicles but, is proving to be very skilled in evading people and capture.

Staff at the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre near Winnipeg have been unsuccessful in apprehending the squatter thus far. Quote: "Swearing by the method of trial and error, the wildlife centre has tried to capture the goose by sidling straight up to the bird, by cornering it and by sneaking up from behind. Wielding a fishing net and bed sheets proved unsuccessful, as did a volleyball net procured from a nearby elementary school. The volunteers have gotten within five feet of the bird on foot and within three feet when they used the car as an initial decoy, but the remaining distance looms large." 

Ultimately, the plan is to catch the goose, examine and treat any injuries, and offer a safe home until spring. 

Unfortunately, chances of catching the pest bird by hand are slim at best. Geese are usually wary of humans and as prey have a strong 'fight or flight' instinct.

At Hawkeye, we employ a number of methods (and often in conjunction)  to chase, capture, and relocate geese.
