Found a dead goose and want to collect bones, should I be concerned about bird laws?
I went on a walk by a pond I live near and found a dead goose on the shore, looks only a few days dead. I'm interested in collecting bones this would be my first scavenge, I plan to move it to a path in the woods nearby people dont go to so it can decompose properly without human interaction (an animal could steal it though huh..hm) and then I'll sanitize the bones. (Any advice on that is helpful too) but my friend brought up the concern of bird protection laws even though I found it dead I didnt kill it, I live in MA and am also a minor (although in criminal court I'd most likely be tried as an adult) could I get in trouble for this?

If you were caught with a dead goose, how would they prove you killed it? Is there a law against POSSESSION of a dead goose? (I mean, there might be!)
Also, if you just leave it in the woods it will be gone. There are scavengers who want that goose, and THEY don't follow the law. 8^)
What I would do is to figure out a way to sneak it home, maybe inside a black trash bag. Then put it in a plastic storage container and buy some dermestid beetles on EBay.
