Funniest LEO contact I ever had just minutes ago

Postby RPB » Thu Jun 14, 2012 7:54 pm

I'm watching TV, door bell rings, I get up, look through door's window and see a shadow, no one on the porch, I have no shirt on and a holstered Glock IWB hanging out. I ease open the door, and see a Police Officer, look past him and see the Police car (I should have looked out the other window and seen it before opening the door)

As soon as I realize it's real Police, I casually put 1 hand high up on the door jamb, the other high up leaning on the door (not reaching for my gun)

Officer says: Did you call about the Geese?
Me: what? what geese? Seriously? Geese? I've been watching TV, ... Geese? what?
Officer turns away to keep from busting out laughing but I saw the smile as he turned and went back to his car and left.

I turn on scanner ... minutes later "Geese have moved on, I'm back in service"
"That's clear"

Now my eyes are watery from laughing and I wonder who reported geese and where and what the geese were doing to bother someone "rlol"

(All I ever reported was a porcupine, about 2 years ago ... the only one seen in town, but I called Animal Control to check for rabies, not Police) :smilelol5:

25 years at a law office, and preparing clients for depositions ... and my boss's voice is in my head now ...
"Why did you say you were watching TV? You shouldn't volunteer information not asked for"

:lol:

There is another street in town that sounds like and is often mistaken for my street name ... I"m guessing the geese were 2 miles away or so on the other street.

I'm wondering who would call the police to report geese....... "rlol"
Seriously, even why they responded and didn't turn it over to animal control.

Most people in this real small country town of 2,500 residents are retired (some may be leaning towards senile) or ... kids are on Summer vacation now. I"m just guessing an aggressive goose was chasing someone's chihuahua or something (they do chase kids down at Lake Marble Falls parks) "rlol"

Small town, not much crime, police probably responded instead of animal control for the amusement factor.
I recall that the animal control lady thought porcupines could shoot quills like arrows ... if she still works there ... perhaps geese scare her :lol:

Geese can be pretty nasty, maybe someone was being harassed by them.

Many years ago I arrived to pick up my date, Mary, at her family's farm, having just listened to "The Association" doing "Along Comes Mary" on the car radio, purely by chance, no tape in cars yet. When I got out of the car to go up to the door and get my date, the geese rounded the corner of the barn. Mary thought it was hilarious, I didn't, being trapped in my car after retreating from the various nips and wing beatings. It didn't work out with Mary, for other reasons, but I still like that song.

I have heard that some people have "guard geese" instead of dogs.

My FIL had a gander that I was afraid of. You had to run from the car to the house door and hope it opened quickly. The gander would grab what ever part of you he could get a hold of and twist. Made for some nasty marks on your skin. Made dating his (FIL) daughter hazardous.

Although the comment above is pure awesomeness...

Never mind talking to them, I wouldn't have even opened the door. A cop, someone from the power company, someone from the gas company, a Rabbi, a solicitor, a street missionary, or any one I don't know falls into the same category; a stranger that I have zero obligation to open the door for. I'll stick with my standard "Can I help you?, I would open the door but I can't trust my dog." If after this conversation there was some real need to be addressed (i.e. the cop says he thinks there may be a prowler in my backyard) I would have to make a decision at that point on how to move forward.

If ACOs are off, patrol will take most animal calls other than full traps, animal attacks, and animal in custody calls. Patrol will field animal at large, dangerous animal, and barking dog calls. In my experience we are less than enthusiastic about such calls, but respond none-the-less.
