One of the most beloved travel center brands has made its way to South Carolina.  Buc-ee’s, which touts itself as “home of the world’s cleanest bathrooms, freshest food and friendliest beaver,” opened the new location on Monday.  You can find the new location at 3390 North Williston Road off of Interstate 95 in Florence, easy access if you’re driving along the East Coast.  https://myfox8.com/news/south-carolina/buc-ees-opens-first-location-in-south-carolina/

 

Geese are everywhere!  Neighborhoods, churches and even the Chick-fil-a parking lot.  The experts say North Carolina has more residential geese flocking to the state and making this their home.  Canada geese are federally protected which means you can’t touch them, scare them or shoot them.  That’s where the Geese Police come in.  They train border collies to stalk the geese instead of sheep. They’ll hop on a kayak to help the dogs get closer to the birds. Those dogs will then intimidate the geese without ever touching them and essentially scare them away from the property.

Soto says they will go to the area every day until the geese leave.  If YOU need the Geese Police, just click on the link to this story on our News Blog at WBFJ.FM!  https://www.wfmynews2.com/article/life/animals/more-geese-flocking-to-the-triad-geese-police-get-the-flock-out/83-ecf6cead-955f-428f-a765-b1f8f53f3274
