Dead geese discovered along Highway 70

BELLEVUE, TN (WSMV) -

If you've driven down Highway 70 south, then you've probably seen it. A row of dead geese puzzling almost everyone who passes.

It's unclear when the geese died, but at least ten birds are lined up on the side of the road near Bellevue.

The area sits less than a mile away from a retention pond where many geese flock.

Animal advocates say they believe someone killed the water fowl, but it's unclear how.

"It's overwhelmingly horrible. Canada geese mate for life. They're amazing animals, a migratory species," says Laura Turner, a volunteer with Tennessee Volunteers for Animal Protection. 

Lucas McClellan was driving by and the scene was enough to make him stop. 

"They're all in a clean line and they're not scattered all over the place, like if they were tossed. Somebody had to deliberately park and place them in a line," McClellan said. 

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says they've also received several calls.
