Revenge of the Goose

Rate this post

On Feb. 1, 2018 around 5 p.m., Robert Meilhammer, 51, of Crapo, Maryland, was hunting with three others for waterfowl in Easton, near the Miles River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Someone in the group fired on a flock of Canada geese overhead.

A dead goose fell from the sky about 90 feet to the ground and knocked Meilhammer unconscious, causing head and facial injuries, according to Candy Thomson, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Natural Resources Police.

Natural Resources police officers, local sheriff deputies and EMS responders transported Meilhammer by ambulance to an airport and airlifted him to a shock trauma unit.

When Meilhammer came to, he knew who he was but “little else,” said a Natural Resources police officer. Emergency responders with Talbot County described Meilhammer’s head injury as “severe.” The dead goose also knocked out two of his teeth.

Canada geese can weigh about 12 pounds and have a wing span reaching up to six feet.

Attempts by WaPo to reach Meilhammer were unsuccessful.

  2. Crapo, Maryland??
    I believe I could have come up with a better name for a town.

  3. I lived in Pottsville, Pa, and I have never forgotten the first time I heard a flock of Canadian gueese flying over the house, we all ran out and saw so many, that was a sight to see, the neighbors laughed. I always waited ‘round October to watch them go by. All we get in Fl. are vultures of all kinds, if you know what I mean.

  4. What’s good for the goose is good for the Meilhammer!

  5. Feb 1, 5pm. Isn’t it dark by that time? Illegal hunting?
