Injured Goose Delays Metro Riders in Tysons Yesterday Evening

(Updated at 9 a.m.) If you faced delays on Metro’s Silver Line in the Tysons area during yesterday’s evening commute, you might have a goose to blame.

A Metro spokesperson confirmed that an injured goose caused the delay yesterday.

The Fairfax County Police Department said that the Animal Protection Police Officer removed the goose, which had an injured wing and leg, and took it to a nearby animal hospital. Police did not have an update to share about the goose’s condition Tuesday (July 30) evening.

Metrorail Info tweeted around 4:30 p.m. Monday (July 29) that an animal on the tracks at Tysons Corner was causing single-tracking and delays in both directions between the Tysons Corner and McLean Metro stations.

Shortly after 6 p.m., another tweet said that single-tracking had ended, but that residual delays continued in both directions.
