TOMAH, WI (WKBT) -

An unusual rescue took place on Lake Tomah Wednesday evening.

A goose was stuck in the ice and apparently had been there since Sunday.

Several community members became concerned for the welfare of the goose and started rallying people to find a way to save the bird.

One person even started a Facebook group called "Save Ferris (the goose)" to get the word out about the predicament.

Two small boats with four people were able to go out on the ice and save the goose around 6:00 p.m. Wednesday night.

One witness says it appears the goose's wing is broken. She says they've contacted a few animal rehabilitation facilities to see if they would be willing to nurse it back to health.
