4 garbage bags full of dead geese found dumped on southern Alberta road
Fish and wildlife officers say bags contained 34 dead birds
Fish and wildlife officers are asking the public for information after four garbage bags filled with dead geese were found on a rural Alberta road in April.
Lethbridge officers received a report the geese had been dumped on April 25.
The four bags were found about 10 kilometres south of Warner, at the end of Range Road 17-3.
The bags contained 34 dead snow geese.
"While snow geese may be hunted during the spring season from March 15 to June 15, all geese must be used and the edible flesh cannot be wasted or abandoned," a social media post from Alberta Fish and Wildlife Enforcement read.
Anyone with information is being asked to call the 24-hour Report-A-Poacher line at 1-800-642-3800, or submit an online report on the government's website.
There is no possession limit on hunting geese, but no more than 50 birds can be hunted each day.
Warner is a village located about 65 kilometres south of Lethbridge.
