On Sept. 16, Kent State Trumbull student Anthony Rossi was fishing in Lake Anne, which is located directly behind Kent State Trumbull campus. When he saw what appeared to be an injured goose, he sprang into action. 

“The goose’s body was on the shore but its head was in the water. After pulling him from the lake, I gave him CPR and he coughed up a lot of water,” said Rossi. 

He then called Birds in Flight Sanctuary who took the bird into their care.
