Two Braceville police officer rescue goose on State Route 5

Posted: Updated:

BRACEVILLE TWP., Ohio - Any police officer will tell you that their job isn't quite like it's depicted on TV shows.

Take the example of two Braceville police officers. You might say that Sergeant Josh Rudesill and Officer Nick Rees went on a wild goose chase on Friday.

Actually, they rescued a goose that was in danger of being run over on State Route 5. Police say they may have also prevented an accident caused by vehicles changing lanes to avoid the bird.

It was Patrolman Rees', who is pictured here, first day on the job.

The goose was taken to a bird sanctuary.
