Geese on a highway - level 3
How do geese cross the road? With police assistance, of course! Yes, that’s right, this family of Canadian geese were causing travel chaos on Monday after walking down a busy motorway near Chicago.
Police were forced to close down part of the highway and escort the two adult geese along with their five goslings along a single lane to make sure they didn’t stray into traffic, as hundreds of cars and tractor-trailers drove past them.
After some careful manoeuvring, the geese were safely guided into a nearby neighbourhood.
Difficult words: escort (to take somebody somewhere), gosling (young goose), stray (walk), manoeuvre (to move skilfully).
Do you have geese in your country?
