When animals in Los Angeles are in danger, don't call the SWAT team; call the SMART team! They take care of the city's animals in need of help, like this Egyptian goose whose leg was wrapped in fishing line. With the use of a Talon Net Launcher (something we didn't know existed until today), the team was able to catch the bird and safely remove the tangled line.
On the subject of goose rescues, some Good Samaritans in Las Vegas helped a goose that had both of its feet wrapped up in string. The poor bird wasn't walking right, and whether the goose knew it or not, it needed help right away. Thankfully, these helpful folks wrapped the goose in a towel so they could cut away the string. Afterwards, the goose began moving around much better than before.
