Things went south: Goose stuck on ice for nearly five days

Staff photo by Hannah LaClaire Bruce the Goose has been stuck on the frozen Nashua River next to Margaritas for the better part of a week, according to management. His wing, which is hanging down and appears to be injured, has a coating of visible ice. Animal Control has been contacted and cannot grab the bird until it gets closer to the building.

They started feeding him on Saturday, but he was spotted in the area as early as Friday.

NASHUA – Bruce is cold and wet, and he’s been eating nothing but tortilla chips and hamburger buns for the last five days. He would probably like to go home, but he can’t find the right path.
