Mom sends Cincinnati cop on mild goose chase

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati Police Officer responded to an unusual distress call while sitting in his cruiser Monday.

Sergeant James Givens was sitting in his car near Mill Creek when a mother goose pecked on his door, Cincinnati Police Lt. Steve Saunders said.

Givens followed the goose thinking it wanted some food, but the mother goose led Givens to her baby gosling that was caught in a string of a Mother's Day balloon.

He and specialist Cecilia Charron decided to take matters into their own hands after no one was readily available from the SPCA to help the gosling.

With Givens recording and the mother goose honking, Charron freed the baby bird from the balloon.

After being freed, the video shows the gosling promptly running off to join the rest of the family.
