Wilton the goose in Wilton Park.

Have your say

A goose that suffered horrific injuries after teenagers apparently ripped off its beak is now the star of its own dedicated Facebook page.

As reported in the News, the Canadian goose, named Wilton, was found by Jason Margrave and his children with the bottom part of its beak missing and its tongue hanging out in Wilton Park last week. A witness told Mr Margrave that a group of teenagers had attacked the goose.

The father caught the injured bird and took it to Ponderosa Rural Therapeutic Centre in Heckmondwike. But over the weekend the goose disappeared, only to return to Wilton Park.
