The center said rescuers are attempting to capture the goose so its injury can be treated.

Officials said similar injuries are becoming increasingly common -- the center treated a goose dubbed 'Steve' last year after he was spotted in Kennesaw and eluded capture for two months with a 2-foot arrow through his head.
