Two Canada geese and their five goslings caused a major ruckus on a Chicago-area expressway during Tuesday rush hour.
Late Tuesday afternoon, the family of geese were first spotted waddling down the westbound Interstate 80/84 by a traffic camera in northwest Indiana, according to WGN.
The geese caused massive delays and at one point even prompted police to shut the highway down entirely during their trek that crossed the Indiana-Illinois border.

"It was a very happy little family, just walking along the highway," Donna Siebert, who witnessed part of the family's journey, told ABC Chicago.
The geese spent two hours moving along the interstate, occasionally veering into traffic, before an Indiana state police trooper -- who's been nicknamed the "geese whisperer" -- helped lead them across all five lanes of traffic, according to ABC.
The geese finally wound up off the expressway and in a nearby neighborhood.
