Please forgive if this has been asked before. 

I watched a Canada goose this morning in Stratford by Johnson Creek with a very large neck band, label X1A_ (I could not see bottom end of it). It is at least 4" long and encircles the goose's neck, and appears to make it hard for it to swallow. I watched it trying to feed and the band appeared to be inhibiting it. 

Does anyone know anything about this? Do I report it to someone?
