Man vs. Goose – The Lightsaber Battle! [VIDEO]
The other day I had a duck sitting in my yard. It wasn't harming anyone, just hanging out under a tree. I fed him a little bread and he stayed a while longer, then went on his way. The bird did not come after me. Geese, on the other hand, can be a little testy, and at times will come after anyone who comes near them.
Such is the case of the goose in this video. A man is trying to get into a building, and is stopped by a bird who clearly wants something from the guy. To make the video even more interesting, someone added lightsabers to the mix, making the battle even better. Personally I like the spot at 1:02 when you think it's all over, but find out it's not.
If you find yourself in a situtation where you're fighting a goose, ehow has some suggestions about how to go about the battle. Maintain eye contact, don't turn your back to the goose, back up instead of turning around, and if the goose starts hissing and spreading his wings, get out of there. Geese usually won't go over a fence, so if there's one nearby, it's good to get on the other side of it.
I've seen my fair share of birds walking around Wichita Falls, but none of them have bothered me. Have you had an experience with a bird that was less than favorable?
