Mother goose tracks down Cincinnati police to help rescue her gosling


When a baby is in trouble, mama will find a way to get help no matter how hard she must try.

In the case of a mother goose in Cincinnati, she certainly tracked down the right people when her little gosling needed help.

One of her babies got tangled up in some string from a Mother’s Day balloon, which was left among the litter at Mill Creek.

Sergeant James Givens says the mama Goose started pecking at his cruiser door and led him to her baby.

At first he says he thought she was just hungry. “It kept pecking and pecking and normally they don’t come near us. 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,” Givens told WKRC.

Specialist Cecilia Charron called the SPCA, but since no one came immediately, she stepped in and just relied on her motherly instincts.

Givens admits he was surprised the Mother Goose didn’t intervene. He always thought they were afraid of people – he said. Charron just had the right touch.

“Well she has a couple of kids of her own and I guess that motherly instinct must’ve kicked in because it was like they communicated. The mother goose didn’t bother her,” Givens said

Everything ended well. As soon as Charron set her free, the little gosling ran right back into the creek to join the others.
