A Persistent Goose Leads Police Officers To A Trapped Baby


Officer James Givens of the Cincinnati Police Department was initially amused when a mother goose wandered over to his patrol car and started pecking on the side. He figured she just wanted food. But the pecking continued, and as it turns out, the officer was in for quite the surprise!

Officer Givens grew curious when the persistent goose ignored the food he tossed out the window. Instead, the bird walked away just a bit, then stopped, looked back, and returned to the cop car for some more pecking and squawking.

After doing so for a second time, Officer Givens finally took the bait and got out of his car to follow the goose. But he wasn’t prepared for what he was about to find!

“She led me about 100 yards away to this grassy area near a creek. That’s when I saw one of her babies all tangled up in some string from a balloon. His little feet were kicking,” the officer explained. “She led me straight to him.”
