CINCINNATI: A pair of geese and several goslings are blamed for twice bringing rush-hour traffic to a standstill on a suburban Cincinnati interstate.
WCPO-TV says someone called 911 Wednesday evening to report geese walking down Interstate 71 in Sycamore Township, forcing drivers to hit the brakes and veer out of the way.
Molly Reynolds of Fort Wright, Ky., says she had just pulled onto the highway when the geese appeared. She says vehicles were creeping slowing around the geese in case they changed direction.
Eventually, police blocked traffic to guide the geese across the roadway to a grassy area. Traffic stopped again less than a half-hour later when the geese returned to the edge of the highway and officers ushered them away.
No geese and no travelers were hurt.
