50 Cent the Goose Shot Seven Times and Survives, Needs New Home

AP

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) – The goose 50 Cent is on the mend.

Named for the rapper who survived nine gunshot wounds, 50 Cent the waterfowl now needs a new home. The goose was brought into a northern Arkansas animal hospital with a damaged wing.

Veterinarian Rob Conner says an X-ray revealed the goose had been shot seven times with a pellet gun. Conner operated on the bird’s wing, inserting a metal rod and plastic tube to help the bird heal.

Conner tells The Baxter Bulletin (http://is.gd/xFrtLw ) that workers initially wanted to name the goose Tupac, after the late rapper, but that they settled on 50 Cent because he recovered from his shooting.

Authorities don’t know who shot the 50 Cent the goose. Conner says he’s hopeful someone will adopt the animal.
