Sheriff's divers have come to the rescue of a trapped goose that sat too long in frigid waters of a Detroit suburb.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Police responded Friday night after being told the goose was trapped in the Clinton River near Shadyside Park.

Divers and a marine officer first tried putting warm water around the goose, which was frozen in the ice.

Macomb County Sheriff's divers chipped away at the ice and within an hour freed the goose. The bird then waddled to a group of geese sitting in open water nearby.

Sgt. Dan Willis says it honked, then "swam away with the rest of the pack."
