The Warren County sheriff's office says it's investigating whether a deputy sheriff acted properly in killing an injured Canada goose.
A citizen made a formal complaint about the manner in which Deputy Mark Pelfrey destroyed the goose Monday on Columbia Road in Deerfield Township.
The sheriff's office confirms that Pelfrey received a call at 9:45 a.m. to check on an injured bird in the roadway. He discovered it was seriously injured and killed it.
Witnesses say Pelfrey clubbed and stomped the bird. The sheriff's office would not discuss how the bird was killed.
Chief Deputy John Newsom said Pelfrey remained on duty.
"He's not permitted to talk to the media until we see the (internal investigation) report," Newsom said.
Lisa Kuhn, reported the goose incident along with her husband, Artie. She said she was stunned that Pelfrey clubbed and stomped the animal in front of them and their two children, ages 3 and 1.
First off, this deputy doesn't deserve an investigation he deserves a medal.
The geese out here in Redville have become a first class nuisance to every citizen in the area.
But that's not what caught my attention to this story. This was the kicker...
She saw the officer retrieve a nightstick from his trunk, but she thought he was going to nudge it further off the roadway. Kuhn said he beat the goose, despite her cries for him to stop. She said her husband also saw the officer stomp on its neck.Kuhn, who has experience raising Mallard ducks, said she didn't think the animal was mortally wounded. She thinks it could have survived with veterinary care.
So let me make sure I have this right. You have knowledge of the injury this animal has so your solution is to call someone else and have them fix the problem instead of handling it yourself? And then you're disappointed when their solution didn't match up with how you would handle it?
These people have to be democrats.....
