CHP officer aids baby geese trying to cross Highway 101 in northern Santa Rosa
A determined gaggle of baby geese separated from their mother by Highway 101 near River Road were rescued, reunited and relocated by a CHP officer, alerted by concerned drivers, the CHP said Monday.
A few drivers called for help Saturday at about 6:40 p.m. to report the tiny birds on the edge of Highway 101 at River Road, CHP Officer Jon Sloat said Monday.
Officer Josh Phillips, on patrol in the area, took the call. He found the mother goose had made it safely across but five goslings were stuck on the other side, and looked like they intended to walk into traffic to get to her.
Phillips collected the tiny goslings in a bag and reunited them with their mother by the new Sutter Hospital, Sloat said.
“They were determined to cross the road - just like the chicken that set a bad example,” Sloat said.
