Officer James Givens of the Cincinnati Police Department was sitting in his patrol car when he heard a tapping on the driver side of his car. When he looked to see who it was, he was shocked.
A Canadian goose was pecking on the police car, so he threw out some food for her. She didn’t take the food, but continued to quack and peck on the car. The goose started walking away, then turned back and pecked some more. The goose then walked away a second time and looked back again, which prompted the officer to follow her.
Good thing he decided to follow her because after following the goose about 100 yards away to a grassy area near a creek, he noticed a little baby was tangled up in some string from a balloon. “She led me straight to him,” said Givens.
Officer Givens was a little worried to approach the baby, thinking the mother goose would attack. He radioed the SPCA, whom were unable to come immediately. Luckily, Given’s colleague, Officer Cecilia Charron, heard the call and came to help.
Officer Charron arrived and walked right up to the baby goose to untangle him from the string, while mother goose stood to the side, waiting and watching.
Watch and see this compassionate and heroic officer help mama and baby in a time of need and how mother goose thanks the officers for their help!
