Kent Co. Town Park Closed During Safety Investigation

Posted: Updated:

WYOMING, Del. - Wyoming Park remains closed pending an investigation into more than a dozen geese deaths.

Wyoming town officials notified 47 ABC that the town park has been closed until further notice due to some safety issues. DNREC tells us they, the Delaware Department of Agriculture, and Delaware Public Health are in the middle of a joint investigation surrounding the death of 17 canadian geese. There are no outward signs trauma, so the bodies have been shipped to a Pennsylvania veterinary lab for toxicology reports.

The town's website says the park will reopen once it is deemed safe, but DNREC doesn't expect the results those lab reports until after memorial day.
