That's fowl play! Guard goose attacks police officer who tries to fight it off with his bag but trips over before running away

This police officer was attacked by an angry Canada goose while on his way back to the station and forced to run.

The detective, from Clarksville, Indiana, lashed out at the bird with his bag but tripped over before making a swift exit.

But that was only after several seconds of being beaten by the goose's wings. Landscapers working in the local area were also attacked by territorial geese wanting to defend their nests.

He wrote online: 'Detective Hall forgot his keys. He then attempts to enter the building and is challenged by our local geese. Bad decision.'

Canada geese are protected from hunting and capture outside of designated hunting seasons in the United States by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and in Canada under the Migratory Birds Convention Act. In both countries, commercial transactions such as buying or trading are mostly prohibited and the possession, hunting, and interfering with the activity of the animals are subject to restrictions.

Geese have a tendency to attack humans when they feel themselves or their goslings to be threatened. First, the geese stand erect, spread their wings, and produce a hissing sound. Next, the geese charge. They may then bite or attack with their wings.
