It’s not every day we get to see a family of geese trying to cross a bustling highway.
A family of Canada geese made a regular day more interesting for commuters as they attempted to cross a busy street.
In this video, Dad, mom, and 5 gooselings slowly padded their way into the middle of the road and you can’t help but hold your breath as you watch them and wish they don’t get run over by a reckless driver.
Surprisingly, the cars did stop and let the goose family take their sweet time making their way to the other side.
It’s amazing because these geese don’t have a sense of what cars are and how much danger they pose to animals like them, yet they crossed the street so carefully, slowly, and most importantly, safely! They probably are better street-crossers than some humans we know!
In a single file, all of dad, mom, and the 5 gooselings successfully made it to the other side without a scratch or unnecessary panic.
Kudos to all the commuters who gave way and took time to slow down, stop, and smell the roses, giving these geese a few minutes to cross without fear.
Next time we see wildlife trying to make sense of our modern ways of living like this family of Canada geese who just wanted to get to the other side of the road unharmed by vehicles, let’s do everything we can to help them do it safely. Onlookers, do these creatures a favor and stop traffic for them. Drivers, we’re always in a hurry, but it’s not every day we get to admire these creatures do people-things, like crossing a road.
Watch this amazing feat here and be amazed.
