We know that our animal counterparts canoften be fiercely independent.But sometimes, theyare in need of our help, and are quite happy to ask for it.It was just another normal Monday in May for Officer James Givens of the Cincinnati Police Department, sitting in his patrol car in a car park.
She led Givens to a grassy bit of land, where one of her babies had become tangled up and trapped by the string of a balloon. "She led me straight to him", says Givens.The officer was nervous that the goose would attack him if he tried to free her gosling. He called the SPCA for aid, but with no rescuers available at the time, his colleague Officer Cecilia Charron volunteered instead.
Who knows if the goose was intentionally asking for the help of the police officer? But she got the help she needed, and things could have been very different if Givens didn't give her the time of day.It's an unlikely story, but a story of basic human kindness which paid off.Givens hopes that itwill encourage others to show a little more compassion towards animals:"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?"Check out the heartwarming video here:
