‘Chances Of Survival Are Low’ For The Attacked Fairhaven Goose

Fylde Council has reminded visitors to keep their dogs on a lead. This follows the upsetting scenes at Fairhaven Lake this weekend when a goose was attacked. The goose is currently receiving treatment, but a Fylde Council spokesperson says its chances of survival are low.

The spokesperson continued, ‘To prevent such incidents, we kindly remind all visitors to keep their dogs on leads while enjoying Fairhaven Lake and help ensure the safety of our wildlife. Geese are very protective of their babies so please be careful.’
