Geese are territorial birds and are known to chase or attack humans who disturb their territory. While geese may chase people, an actual physical attack is fairly rare. Ever tried to do a solid for someone who needed a hand, and ended up getting a face full of furious feathers for your trouble?
A man was attacked by a goose as he stopped to help a couple of geese and their goslings cross the road in Sherwood Park, just out side of Edmonton, Alta., last week, when he tried to help a family of struggling Canada Geese cross the road.
As you can see in the video above, shot by Salena Messal, the unidentified person had intervened to help out when the family’s goslings were struggling to mount the curb, causing a traffic jam. The geese objected, and their rebuke was so severe the would-be Good Samaritan was even knocked over. The man was driving home from golf on Tuesday afternoon when he came across two geese and their goslings attempting to cross Broadmoor Boulevard.
