Kicker: Beware of goose


MARY REICHARD, HOST: Wild animals are always unpredictable, even dangerous when they feel threatened or when they’re protecting their young.

And after a recent attack in a parking lot, police have issued the following warning: “Beware of goose!”

Actually, it should beware of geese because there are two of them nesting in the area, and the birds are protective.

Several have reported goose attacks, but thankfully no one’s been hurt.

A video recently surfaced online of one goose swooping down on an unsuspecting pedestrian, and chasing him across the parking lot.

And police are just trying to avoid any more wild goose chases.
