Prayer Request

Sad news to report:  on Monday morning one of the Bon Bon Pond Canada Geese was hit by a car. The flock has a bad habit of sitting in the middle of the road that runs between sections two and three of the  water.  I spend a good share of my day running down the street and screaming like a banshee in an effort to frighten them off of that filthy—and dangerous—cow  path but my actions have been in vain.  Alas, nothing I try has been successful in  keeping them off the dirt highway and safe from speeding cars. 

The injured waterfowl  is one of the young pair that do not have offspring.  He (I believe it is the gander) has a wound to his foot but can put weight on it and is able to hobble up and down the hill. Neighbor Bonnie believes his wing is also hurt but it’s hard to tell now that they are molting.  I can say there is no obvious dropping or mangling so I remain hopeful that it will heal over the summer.  
Healing prayers for one of God’s creatures in need is deeply appreciated.  Thank you.
