When a mother goose tapped on a police cruiser, the officers had no idea what she was up to. The goose, as it turns out, was trying to get someone to help her gosling that was tangled up in string from a Mother’s Day balloon.
Sergeant James Givens was the officer who the mother goose enlisted for help, “It kept pecking and pecking and normally they don’t come near us. 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”.
Givens took a video of the rescue, while Specialist Cecilia Charron worked to free the gosling. They were concerned as to how mom would react to them touching her gosling, but to their surprise she sat back and watched: “Well she (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. The mother goose didn’t bother her,” Givens said.
Once Charron freed the baby, the mother goose and her gosling waddled back to the water.
