Delaware officials have closed Wyoming Park in Wyoming, Delaware after the mysterious death of 17 geese during the weekend of May 24 and 25, 2014, according to Delaware Online. The park closed on Sunday night after authorities found four adult geese and 13 goslings dead or dying. No obvious signs of injury were reported.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is investigating.

A necropsy and toxicology tests are underway on three of the adult geese and two of the goslings. The park will remained closed and any events scheduled have been canceled until further notice. Water from Wyoming Mill Pond and other samples were also taken from the park to be tested. It is unclear as to what was the cause.

Officials are keeping an eye on Wyoming Park to see if any more geese or other wildlife suffer a similar fate. So far, no more deaths have been reported.
