Court heard that on June 22, a Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officer responded to information about a goose that had been run over in the Township of Douro-Dummer in Peterborough County, just northeast of the city of Peterborough.

“The investigation revealed that Charlton was driving when he noticed a family of geese on the road,” the MNRF stated.
