You can make up your own 'wild goose chase' jokes, but state wildlife officials are extending a serious invitation to the public to help join in a goose roundup Tuesday in Kewaunee.
It's part of an annual effort by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other agencies to place leg bands on a variety of birds, including migratory game birds like ducks, doves and geese. The effort helps determine the rate of hunting, harvest and animal survival rate for different bird species and populations within a species.
The goose round-up and banding will take place Tuesday, June 19 at 9:00 a.m. at the Kewaunee Harbor, 123 Main Street in Kewaunee.
It's part of a statewide effort to band thousands of birds this year.
The DNR says those who come to round up geese should be dressed appropriately with proper footwear.
