A goose in a pram was spotted enjoying a day out in Cheltenham last Sunday.
The feathered friend turned a few heads around the Suffolk Markets, reports Gloucestershire Live, but looked pretty happy with its lot, tucked up in what appears to be a small dog bed which in turn is in a pram.

Hoppy has a congenital problem in his left foot, restricting his mobility and lives inside with David and his wife Ree at their Westbury-on-Severn home.
