Local News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — A goose found injured in Garvin Park is released back to its family after a local group helps it back to health.

The Garvin Foundation released, Stitch the Goose, back out into the wild.

They found Stitch three weeks ago with its face injured.

A vet had to remove one of Stitch’s eyes after it got a severe infection.

Alice and Steve Pike kept it at their home and cared for it.

They say it’s getting used to being with its family again.

“They’re just trying to introduce themselves to him again. He’s hanging out with the group as a whole, so that’s a promising sign, and he wants to get in the water, but he’s waiting until the group gets into the water until the group does for security.”

The Pikes also say they’ll check in with Stitch as he continues to get readjusted back into his environment.
