"I'll send someone down to do some flocking"


I took this picture yesterday as I was driving home through town.  I was sitting at a stop sign which is how I got such a clear photo.  In the interest of goose/gosling safety I called the police department.  Yes I have them on speed dial, it's a small town, we are on a first name basis with half of the police force.

Police:  Police department, how can I help you?
Me:  Hi there, I know this isn't a police emergency but at the bottom of Queen Street there is a family of geese with their little babies trying to cross the street.  Traffic is stuck and I am worried they are going to end up run over.  Maybe if someone isn't busy they can go down there and help them get across the road?
Police:  No problem, thanks for letting us know, I'll send someone down to do some flocking.

Hahaha!!! Too cute!!!!!!! We have the same problem around here sometimes and I have actually heard that a woman plowed through a group of them one time. It is so sad and terrible that someone would do that. :(

Great little story...I'm so pleased to hear the response you got from your local police dept, I was afraid it would end differently.

Oh my gosh that is the cutest thing. There are so many! So glad you captured such a great photo! And so thoughtful of you too, to let the police know about it.

That is so funny!! I'm sure the policeman who got dispatched for that was thrilled.

I'm surprised! In our town we had a deer in a store and when the police were called they said that the retailer should just shoo it out!

I love this! My sister was a 911 dispatcher and she once got a call (the 911 emergency kind) because there was a turkey on the highway!!
Thanks for the giggle--and great shot!
