Baby Geese Lead Police on Low-Speed Chase

A flock of baby geese got a special escort as they made their way down California’s Interstate 80 on Sunday morning. The California Highway Patrol in Oakland got a call about some goslings who were wandering along the busy roadway. “We ran a traffic break and we stopped the freeway so we can get them corralled to the right hand shoulder — and that's where the world's slowest pursuit took place,” said Officer Sean Wilkenfeld. At least three CHPs vehicles gathered the “felonious fowl,” as Wilkenfeld called them, and guided them toward an exit to get them to the water. CHPs Oakland shared a video of the “nail-biting pursuit” on Facebook. — Read it at SF Gate
