2-Year Term For Teen Who Killed Prize Goose

A man who hammered an award-winning goose to death was sentenced to up to two years in prison.

A judge Friday also ordered mental health counseling for John Segriff, 18.

Segriff was convicted in January of cruelty to animals, theft and trespassing for using a hammer to kill Bam-Bam, an 8-year-old goose that had won awards in community shows.

Police said Segriff took the goose from a fenced yard and killed it behind an elementary school.

Segriff also was ordered to pay $1,000 restitution, a $100 reward for the man whose tip led to the arrest and the $107 fee for the bird’s autopsy.
