PRINCETON — A Henry man faces a number of charges after allegedly killing two goslings.

Daniel Sluis, 29, of Henry was charged by Conservation Police officer Scott Wright with two counts of unlawful taking of Canadian geese with illegal method (club), two counts of unlawful taking of Canada geese during a closed season, unlawful taking of wildlife without a hunting license, unlawful fishing without a sport fishing license and civil penalty for two Canadian goose goslings.

According to Wright, Sluis was charged after killing two goslings at 6 p.m. May 27 at Old Brewery Lake in Princeton. Wright said Sluis told him he and his son were fishing when geese came too close to them, and he beat them back with a stick before killing two goslings.
