Goose as a traffic cop?

I read this interesting news item in today's Dallas Morning News and felt that I must share it with the readers of my blog. This is a everyday phenomenon in Rowlett city of Texas. A big goose helps cops in traffic management and ensuring that children are safe. The goose stands in the middle of the road and helps students cross the road. The children who were initially surprised to see this winged aquatic creature are not comfortable with it.

Since several months the goose has become so much part of the traffic and school scene that it has been named Sam by the friendly guards and school staff. It is completely intriguing how a wild goose is behaving so much human. Trained dogs and some species of birds are used to help in various human activities but a wild goose that too helping in managing traffic is unheard of. Truly the world is such a diverse and intriguing place.

The story just doesn't end there. Read on to know the incredible story of losing a pet and getting it back after 16 years. This is truly a story worth reading repeating. Isn't it? Your views are solicited.
