Quack! Quack! Quack!

This is not a funny, but I thought that you gals would love this adorable story.

 

Officer James Givens has served with the Cincinnati Police Department for over 26 years, but has never quite experienced anything like this before.


He was sitting in his patrol car in a parking lot when he got an unexpected visitor.

A goose came up to his car and started pecking on the side of it.

He threw food out for her, thinking that's what she wanted, but she didn't take it.

She continued to peck and quack, then walked away, stopped, and looked back at Officer Givens.

Then she came back to his car and pecked at it again. She made it very obvious that she wanted Officer Givens to follow her, so he finally got out of his car and did just that.

The goose led him 100 yard away to a grassy area near a creek. Sitting there was one of her babies, tangled up in a balloon string. The baby was kicking its feet, desperate for help.

Being wary of helping the baby on his own, and worried that the goose might attack him, Givens called for help from the SPCA, but no wildlife rescuers were available at the moment.

Luckily, Given's colleague, Officer Cecilia Charron, came to help. She began to untangle the baby, and the mother goose just stood there and watched, quacking. She didn't become aggressive, and just let Officer Charron do what she had to do to set the baby free.

It was like the mother goose knew they were helping. Once Charron untangled the baby, she put it down and it ran right to her mom, and they went right to swimming in the creek.

Charron teared up and said it was the highlight of her 24 years on the force.

"It seems like something made up. It was just incredible," Givens said. "I honestly don't know why I decided to follow her, but I did. It makes me wonder – do they know to turn to humans when they need help?"

We may never know the answer to this question, but what we do know is that Officer Givens was in the right place at the right time to help these geese!

So sweet!! I saw a video on FB recently where some ducklings had fallen into a drainage pipe. The video showed firemen reaching in to pull out the ducklings. They even had to cross the street to reach in the drainage pipe on the other side. The momma duck was upset but she didn't try to attack the firemen. It's amazing that the mommas in both story did whatever they needed to do to save their babies! love it!
