Police Officer James Givens has never quite experienced anything like it in over 26 years of service with the Cincinnati Police Department. While he was sitting in his patrol car, a goose came up and started pecking on the side of the car. Thinking she wanted food, he gave her some but the goose just ignored it.
She continued pecking and making noises, started walking away, then stopped and looked back at the officer. When he did nothing, she came back to the patrol car and started pecking at it again. This is when he realized that the goosed wanted the Officer to follow her. So he got out of his car and followed her.
The goose led the officer to a grassy area near a creek, 100 yard away from the car. He couldn’t believe what the goose wanted him to do when he saw one of her babies tangled up in a string, desperate for help. He called for help from wildlife rescuers but no one was available at the moment. Officer Givens was worried that the goose might attack him if he helped the baby on his own.
His colleague Officer Cecilia Charron luckily came to help. She untangled the baby while the mother goose just stood there and watched. She let Officer Charron set the baby free. The mother goose seemed to know they were there to help. Once the baby was free, she ran right to her mother and they all went back to swimming in the creek.
Officer Charron said it was the highlight of her 24 years on the force, with tears in her eyes.
“It seems like something made up. It was just incredible,” Givens said. “I honestly don’t know why I decided to follower her, but I did.” Watch the amazing video!
