 A homeless man in Glendale is being credited for helping rescue a goose that had been shot in the head with a nail gun. KUSA-TV reports that Don Carson began making calls to wildlife agencies and animal control offices before reaching wildlife rehab center worker Cindy Yeast. She caught the goose and took it Deer Creek Animal Hospital in Littleton where veterinarian Jesse Apted performed surgery. The goose recovered and is back at the park, while Carson has since found a job at a bakery and is no longer homeless.
