Two or more Canadian Geese were killed by a motorist on Wallace Terrace Monday evening according to the facebook page, SooSleuths.
It’s alleged that a driver of a pick up truck purposely sped up and drove through a flock of geese crossing the road near the entrance to Tenaris Tubes on Wallace Terrace.
According to the post , two birds were killed and another injured and left on the side of the road. Sault Ste. Marie Police were called to the scene, however they say they can’t confirm if the birds were geese.
