One lucky bird got a new lease on life Tuesday from Morristown’s Bravest.
The goose was caught in a spillway at Burnham Pond, and the fowlish thing might still be there if not for Acting Captain Mike Cirelli and Firefighters Alex Cadena and Nolan Bass.
It appeared that the goose had been stuck down there a long time, because it gave no struggle to the rescuers, said Fire Chief Robert Flanagan.
He reported that the bird “seemed tired, yet anxious to get out!”
