This video confirms that Canadian geese are, without a doubt, our country's most powerful weapon. The video, which was posted yesterday and has since gone viral, shows a man getting savagely beaten down by an angry, protective goose.
Somehow, two adult geese and their babies ended up in the middle of a busy street in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The man in the video got out of his car to help one baby gosling who got left behind.
That's when the goose attacked. In the video, the goose swoops in and knocks the guy to the ground. He tries to get up, but the goose shoves him back down with his beak. It circles around him several times, flapping his wings in his face to keep him on the ground.
The video ends with the goose helping their baby onto the ledge with the rest of them. It's actually really cute, if you disregard the fact that a man almost lost his life seconds earlier.
Commenters are shocked at how ruthless the goose was. "Thats why i fkn hate geese u try to help n they attack," one person writes. "That geese was even pissed at the gosling," another commenter points out, "in goose language he said 'Get your ass back on the curb got humans bothering us and sh*t.'"
Moral of the story - if you ever find yourself between a goose and their young, be prepared to fight for your life.
