To Stop a Goose Attack

Step 1- Pay attention to the actions of the male goose when you enter his territory. If he sounds a warning, that is your signal to leave the area.

Step 2- Show no fear. Geese are particularly attuned to body language and a show of fear may increase the intensity of the attack.

Step 3- Maintain eye contact. Geese have excellent vision and interpret loss of eye contact as an act of fear.

Step 4- Stay calm. Don't yell or try to hit the male goose. The female may join the attack and then you will be in real trouble.

Step 5- Keep your body facing directly toward the goose. Never turn your back on an attacking goose.

Step 6- Walk slowly backwards if the goose hisses at you or spreads its wings. Use your peripheral vision to avoid tripping over obstacles.

Step 7-Continue facing the goose and back slowly away at a 90-degree angle from the goose if he flies up at your face.

Step 8-Make your escape and exit the area through a gate if possible. Geese rarely fly over a fence.

If you've encountered an irate bird such as our notorious winged friend let us know how you prevailed!
