In Cincinnati, Ohio, police officer James Givens was sitting in his patrol car when he heard what sounded like a little knock on his vehicle’s door.
It turned out that knock was from a goose.
“It kept pecking and pecking and normally they don’t come near us,” Givens told WKRC Cincinnati. ”Then it walked away and then it stopped and looked back so I followed it and it led me right over to the baby that was tangled up in all that string.”
The string was attached to a discarded Mother’s Day balloon, giving an unfortunate and ironic spin to this mother goose’s story.
Givens used his cell phone to take video of the incident along with specialist Cecilia Charron. The two called the local chapter of SPCA but they were unable to send someone out quickly enough, so Charron stepped up and saved the baby herself.
“[Charron] has a couple of kids of her own and I guess that motherly instinct must’ve kicked in because it was like they communicated,” Givens told WRKC. “The mother goose didn’t bother her, so Specialist Charron came and untangled it. It took her awhile because it was all wrapped up.”
But eventually, the human mom was able to help the goose mom to save her baby gosling.
Happy Flyday ~^v^~
