Breastfeeding Mom Sprints Out Of House In Her Underwear To Save Pet Goose From Bald Eagle

This may be the most bizarre and incredible example of multitasking I’ve ever seen in my life.

Two summers ago, according to Canada’s Chek News, a Canadian woman noticed her pet goose was being attacked by a bald eagle… while she was breastfeeding her baby. Cait Oakley, a 31-year-old from the North Saanich area, said she had lost three chickens in the last week, more than likely due to hawk attacks.

If you know anything about keeping chickens, you know that it’s pretty likely something besides you is going to be eating them at some point. Coyote, hawk, maybe even a weasel… it just comes with the territory.

When she witnessed her pet Sebastopol goose named Frankie get swooped on by a bald eagle, while she was nursing her daughter and wearing only underwear, she took off out of the house to stop it.

The clip shows Frankie honking hysterically at the front door of the house, when out of nowhere, a bald eagle swoops in, locks those talons into Frankie, and attempts to fly off with the goose. Oakley yells “Hey!” numerous times in the background.

The bald eagle carries Frankie to the driveway, before Oakley runs out of the house in just her underwear, daughter in her arms. Sure enough, Oakley startles the massive bird enough to drop the pet goose and fly off.

Recalling the wild occurrence, Oakley explained:

“I was in the middle of feeding her, so that’s why I didn’t have a shirt on and was getting ready for the evening. 

I just run outside and when Mike (her husband) came out he was like, ‘you’re topless.’ And I’m like yeah, I’m very aware. Sorry neighbors.”

Due to the constant bird attacks, the family has had to since put up netting on the property to ward off the attacks.

Looking back, Oakley says she’s not surprised by the incident:

“As a mom of three I’m always breastfeeding and it’s so natural, that’s mom life summed up, something is always going on when I’m feeding her and I’m always on the go.”

Super mom.
