We never know where calls for service will take us. Today Ofc Dan Brimer and Ofc Jake Schwartz were called to the North Island by a concerned citizen regarding a goose needing assistance. When they arrived they found that the goose had treble hooks from a large fishing lure through both feet and could barely walk. Quick thinking by the officers as they threw a blanket over the goose and were able to contain him while they cut the barbs off of the hooks. With the help of the concerned citizen, they got all of the metal out of gooseโ€™s feet, and he was able to return to the flock.

Good job with a happy ending!
