My coworker has been attacked by a goose on his last couple of rides into work. The goose guards the entrance to the parking lot and he/she swoops down on him. He says it feels like someone swatting him in the head with a newspaper.
Yesterday, at lunch time, we went in the parking lot to video an attack. My coworker rode his bike near the goose. Another guy used his cell phone to video it. The video didn't turn out good enough for showing, but we laughed for a long time watching a goose trying to get my coworker. Even the smokers on the smoking balcony were laughing. We'll try again with a better camera.
Today, was my first bike ride to work this week. I forgot about the goose and as I entered the parking lot, I heard flapping wings and turned to see a goose flying about 10 feet behind me. I dodged and sprinted. The next time I looked over my shoulder it was closer -- huge wings, red mouth, hissing.
The goose let me go when I reached the door at the far end of the parking lot. I really want a video of this. I took this photo later with my cell phone camera. It does not have video.
