Geese on I-380

Geese Cause I-380 Deadlock

At the height of rush hour in downtown Cedar Rapids, traffic came to a crawl for those trying to reach Exit 20B (Downtown Exit). At first the jam appeared to be the result of your typical vehicular accident. It slowly became apparent that this wasn't an accident causing the slowdown, rather, it was a pair of people attempting to guide some geese off of the interstate and oncoming traffic.

What kind kind people to take that time out of their morning! I am sure some people were not happy to be backed up, but no one wants to see innocent animals harmed...even if they do hiss at runners

This could've resulted in a major pile up of accidents and human injuries/deaths, but at least the birds will be safe.
