Golf course worker scores bogey for bagging goose

Wildlife authorities want to speak to an Edmonton-area golf course maintenance worker who killed a Canada goose along a fairway as golfers played nearby.

EDMONTON — Wildlife authorities want to speak to an Edmonton-area golf course maintenance worker who killed a Canada goose along a fairway as golfers played nearby.

A group of friends enjoying a round last Wednesday at the Hunters Green course in Sturgeon County say a man reportedly used a compound bow to kill the bird.

Lindsay Bailer says she was appalled when a friend went to retrieve a ball and returned to say he was within speaking distance of someone who fired an arrow at the goose.

Wayne McGuire, the owner of the course, says he gave the employee permission to hunt on the property Tuesday night but there were no birds, so he came back the next day without telling him.

McGuire says this is the first time something like this has happened at his course, and that the maintenance worker has been spoken to but not fired.

Fish and Wildlife officer Adrian Marr says it would be lawful to hunt at the golf course so long as the hunter is fully licensed and does not fire within 60 metres of an occupied building.
