It certainly sounds like the Goose was indeed trying to get help...
It surprises me that the goose knew that the officer was helping and not endangering its young.
I've heard stories about dolphins and other mammals seeking help from people or providing help to people but a bird?
Nice story! happy ending and good feelings all around.

Not just a bird, but one known for chasing humans, cats, dogs, and other animals away from their territory (let alone their young)!  My mother kept geese for a while and they can be nasty when they want to ... and Canada Geese are some of the most temperamental.  I too was very surprised to see the parent standing a little ways off but not making a move to attack the woman officer removing the string from the gosling ... it clearly understood that she wasn't hurting the little one even though it was making a fuss.


Nice story! happy ending and good feelings all around.

I love stories like this!  And the cops deserve some kudos for acting rather than assuming the bird was just being a nuisance when it pecked the car door ... I think most people would have either ignored it or shooed it off.

Geese are smart. Hanging around a park in the city, the goose observed humans going to the police for help.

Very smart.  :) 

My mother had a pair of Toulouse Geese and the male was more than a little obnoxious.  I was one of a few people who weren't afraid of him so I'd get roped in to help out.  The little bugger liked to nip at you to get a reaction so I'd grab him at the top of his neck so he couldn't get to me and lead him off ... he really hated it so it got to the point (after maybe 5 or 6 times) where all I had to do was hold my hand over his head.  He'd look at me, then up at my hand, and I'd say something like "if you leave me alone then I don't need to".  He'd look at my hand again, then walk off. 

They are absolutely capable of thinking things through and making a decision.   :D
