Have you ever faced any Geese chasing you ? They are just like dogs, they attack furiously with their strong beaks and practically bite you with full intensity. They make hissing sound like cobra snake while attacking! We have few geese on our farm and they are perfect watch dogs for us . They even quack loudly to wake up others in case they feel any emergency! Do you ever encountered with a geese?

Fortunately no. I nearly got pecked by one. When I was younger, we used to have turkeys and man, they were noisy buggers. But yes, they are also like watch dogs, except noisier and would freak out at nearly anything. Even to falling leaves. And when one starts, the whole bunch joins in chorus. And soon enough you have a whole turkey sh'bam happening.

@AKRao24 I wasn't a big fan of them. When they were threatened, they'd fluff their feathers up and blew up to twice their normal size and that always scared me.

Geese have traditionally been used as "guard dogs" in many communities. There is the famous legend of the geese that saved Rome in 390BC by alerting the soldiers to an attack by marauding Gauls - after this incident geese were kept permanently on the Capitoline Hill under the protection of Goddess Juno. I think I have been warned off by geese in the past when walking past farmyards, though actually attacked? I don't remember that!

@AKRao24 Err ... no. It's swans that you're thinking about, and I also think that it only applies to those on the River Thames.

No, but better to keep a distance. They can be aggressive when threatened - siva

Yes, I've been chased by geese. The incident I remember best was actually an error in judgment by the goose. I was hiking around a lake in Iowa, when I suddenly found myself being chased by a goose who had been under a bush. I cursed her out in a soothing voice, and she retreated to a nest with several eggs in it. I told her that had she not chased me, I would not even have known she was there, protecting her nest. When I mentioned the word "omelette," she became angry again, and started to rise from her nest. I told her I was only kidding, and quietly resumed by hike.
