Another wildlife in the city today. This time on the 401 this morning.

Traffic volume from the morning commute was still high when a family of geese wandered off the grass, onto the side of the highway around Midland Avenue, coming dangerously close to passing cars.

An OPP officer came to the rescue using his cruiser to block traffic and escort the birds down the shoulder.

But then they got away, running out in front of the police car and crossing all the eastbound lanes of the busy highway.

Having been outmaneuvered in the car, the officer turns into a foot-chase mode and with the help of a passing trucker he gets traffic stopped so he can herd the birds to the other side.

And finally, a few minutes later, at the end of the guardrail, they make it back to safety.

All in a day’s work for one provincial police officer. And a trucker.

  • Nice catch! Love these moments in time.
    Cheers to all.
