Have You Ever Got Chased By A Goose?

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.

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!
