Mother Goose Gets Police Officer to Help Her Tangled Baby

Somehow, when one of her goslings became tangled in the string from a Mother’s Day balloon, a mother goose knew how to get her baby help. Cincinnati Police Sgt. James Givens said he was parked in his cruiser on Monday when he heard pecking at the door. “It kept pecking and pecking and normally they don't come near us. And 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," he said. The SPCA couldn’t get there fast enough, so Spc. Cecilia Charron came to the rescue. “It was like they communicated. The mother goose didn't bother her. So ... Charron came and untangled it. It took her awhile because it was all wrapped up." Once the gosling was free, the relieved mother and her baby headed for the nearby creek. — Readit at Philadelphia’s 6 ABC
