Geese enjoy racing alongside car

HANCOCK, Minn., Nov. 26 (UPI) -- It's a bird; it's a plane; no, it's a car with a pair of Canada geese flying along side as it cruises along a private grass runway.

The adult geese -- Apollo and Kennedy -- were raised from day-old goslings by Mary Jo and Marvin Brown of Hancock, Minn.

The geese apparently like to go, go, go and the lawnmower wasn't fast enough to feed their need for what the Browns call "goose games," the Star Tribune in Minneapolis reported Monday.

So Apollo and Kennedy flap their wings alongside the couple's Lincoln Town Car as it tools up and down their half-mile-long grass airstrip. Optimum speed: 34 miles per hour.
