Flock of Slow-Moving Geese Halt Traffic in Arizona

A slow-moving gaggle of geese stopped traffic as they waddled across a road in Scottsdale, Arizona, on August 13. Scottsdale resident Tom Lancione recorded this footage of the large feathered group bringing traffic to a standstill. Lancione told Storyful that the monsoon storm the previous night created a river across the street and that it might have been the reason for the geese’s relocation “The geese risked crossing over from the comfort of their usual spot, Chaparral Lake, to check out the newly formed waterway,” he said. Cars approaching the unmissable flock slowed to let them safely cross. Credit: Tom Lancione via Storyful

Arizona Highway Traffic Stopped by Geese

Time spent: 01 min. 10 sec.

On August 13, a group of geese waddling across a road in Scottsdale, Arizona, halted traffic. Tom Lancione, a local of Scottsdale, captured this video of the flock of birds that stopped traffic. The geese’s possible relocation, as explained by Lancione to Storyful, may be related to the river that the monsoon storm the night before created across the street. The geese “took a chance” by venturing across from their safe haven at Chaparral Lake to investigate the new waterway, he said. Inevitably, motorists who were near the flock slowed down to avoid hitting the unavoidable herd. Tom Lancione / Storyful / Credit:
