A very polite and nice thing happened to a gaggle of Canada geese in Chilliwack.
The feathered family of eight – two adults and six goslings – were escorted across Yale Road at Nowell Street in downtown Chilliwack on Friday, April 29.
“Today one of our officers had the honour of keeping some of our nation’s most famous flock safe,” RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Krista Vrolyk said.
It was Const. Gurpreet Manhas who helped the birds cross.
“It was a pleasure to help these geese cross the road. My concern was they were going to get hit by a car. I’m glad they made it safely,” Const. Manhas said.
They crossed the street almost inside the lines of the crosswalk, but not quite. The event was captured on video by Amara Jacklynne Moore.
She said it was “cute” to witness the crossing.
“A couple of us had quite the time making sure they got to the Salish pond safely after the officer had made sure they crossed the street safely,” Moore said.
