Witnesses: Unleashed dog kills 2 goslings at Bronxville Lake

BRONXVILLE -

Bronxville residents were horrified after witnessing a dog allegedly kill two goslings Thursday afternoon.

Witnesses say the baby geese were killed by an unleashed dog as small children and the dog's owners watched.

Frequent visitor to Bronxville Lake, Regina Thompson, says that the dog's owner didn't seem concerned.

"He turns around and says, 'They're just birds,'" Thompson said. "I looked at him and said, 'Why don't you clean your mess up?"

The dog apparently charged at the two goslings, grabbed one of them out of the water and shook both of them. Another gosling survived the attack, along with two geese.

Other witnesses say they had to shield their children's eyes with their hands so they wouldn't see the violent attack.

Thompson also says when the witnesses called Bronxville Police, they were told that it wasn't in their jurisdiction and County Police have no record of the incident Thursday afternoon.
