One injured gosling survived the attack
The geese were decapitated, with torn wings and snapped necks

Toronto police are in the process of investigating the death of 14 geese who were found dead in an industrial area of the city.


The geese were discovered at 6:20 am, decapitated, with torn wings and snapped necks.

It is believed based on the state of the animals that their condition was the result of human attack.

One gosling survived the account despite sustaining injuries, presumably from the attack.

Police are seeking the public's help with the investigation


The event is being investigated by Canadian Wildlife Enforcement Directorate, in cooperation with local police.

Tips can be submitted to the police, or Crime Stoppers by calling 416-222-TIPS.
