Toronto police have launched an animal cruelty investigation after the carcasses of 14 mutilated geese were found in an industrial area in the north end of Toronto Monday morning.
According to police, the birds were found at 6:20 a.m. Monday at Clayson Rd. just north of Bartor Rd. and Highway 400. Some birds had torn wings and legs. Some had their necks snapped, some were decapitated.
The Toronto Wildlife Centre said a fifteenth goose survived the attack. The animal suffered two broken ribs and a puncture wound. The centre said they are now providing the bird care and medical treatment.
Police said they did not suspect an animal attack as the carcasses were found intact. Police believe humans are responsible for the mutilation.
