Police are seeking information about an unknown suspect who used blow darts to shoot and kill a goose on a golf course Friday.
A resident called police Friday evening after finding the white pilgrim goose with dart wounds to the stomach and neck near the fifth hole on the Hogan Golf Course at the Trophy Club Country Club, according to Trophy Club Police Department Lt. Tracey Shields.
The goose was taken to a nearby animal hospital, where it died, Shields said.
The darts were estimated to be about 5 inches long.
Never miss a local story.
Police were trying to determine Tuesday whether the state considers the species to be threatened or protected, in which case the likely charge would be animal cruelty. If not, police may pursue a different charge, such as a violation of a city ordinance that prohibits shooting projectiles, Shields said.
Police are seeking additional information about the incident. If you know anything about it, call 682-831-4650.
