Firefighters in Indiana Dunes State Park rescue a goose stuck in frozen damp sand



Porter, Indiana – Volunteer firefighters in northern Indiana assisted in freeing frozen Canada geese from their icy bonds.

A Canada goose was discovered frozen to the wet sand at Lake Michigan’s shore at Indiana Dunes State Park on Monday, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

DNR reported that other Good Samaritans had already tried unsuccessfully to liberate the fowl.
