What a happy ending to what could have been an incredibly horrible and sad situation.  I shiver just thinking about what could have been, so let's get to the fantastically fabulous news about this rescue.  Thank you to the Massachusetts State Police and the concerned samaritans who informed them and Boston animal control.

The Massachusett State Police Tunnels Barracks in South Boston sent out troopers David Oliveira, Andrew Phelan, and Jose DePena, according to the Massachusetts State Police Facebook page. The troopers then called on the Boston Animal Control, who rescued the geese and got them to a safe and secure spot to continue their day.

The troopers said that like all good parents, the mom and dad refused to abandon their young goslings and made sure to watch over them the entire time. Awww, how heartwarming.  I'm smiling, are you?
