Why do geese suddenly attack people? In 2014, eight geese crossed the road and knocked a cyclist woman to the ground, causing her cheekbone to rupture, concussion and stitches in her face.
The woman, Kelly Suhrman, later went to the hospital to photograph her injuries and could see that the right half of her face was almost full of wounds.
As for why the Canada goose suddenly attacked her, scientists speculated that it was because Suhrman rode too fast, and the goose that crossed the road may have felt threatened, so the goose in charge of the break flew up and flapped her with its wings, causing her to be injured.
In fact, the wounding of geese is not unique in Canada, even Canadian soldiers have to succumb to their ferocious fighting power, in Canada, these geese are even called "uncle goose" (their scientific name, actually called Canadian black geese).
And not only people, but even eagles and chimpanzees, it does not pay any attention to it.
According to a Canadian news report, there was an eagle originally competed with another eagle for food in the air, did not expect a piece of meat to fall into the lake water, the eagle intended to come down, did not expect that the big goose in the lake thought that the eagle was going to encroach on its territory, so it launched a fierce attack, the eagle was dead in the water.
As for the scene of the Canadian goose provoking the chimpanzee, although there is no official report, a netizen named "sandib477ac1c66" uploaded the GIF of the big goose provoking the chimpanzee to the Internet (see the end of the article).
And when they are fierce, even the same kind will not let go, in 2014, there were people in Long Island, New York, there were two Canada goose, because of the fierce conflict over food, and finally one of them was directly killed.
This is because the group status advantage between Canada geese is actually sorted according to the number of individuals in the social unit, which means that a large group with a large number will attack a small number of groups, and a small number will attack a group with only couples, and then a couple will attack a single goose...
This aggressive behavior is an investment for Canada goose, and if it wins, there will be territory and food, but this behavior is usually accompanied by injuries and even death.
But Canada Goose is, of course, known for its attacks.
In 2014, there was a news in Canada called "Geese hold student hostage", which means "goose has taken students hostage", although I don't know if this news is a spoof, but according to the fact that Canada Goose often commits crimes in schools, blocks roads, and chases students and teachers to attack, this news is likely to be true.
In 2017, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter Mike Gowron reported that Kate, a biology girl at the University of Waterloo, had almost been attacked from behind by two geese.
It was spring, and Kate liked to walk around campus, but the Canada goose also happened to lay eggs and hatch at that time, which was very aggressive, so they were threatening to protect their nests and eggs, and although Kate did not do anything to them, they still followed Kate and waited for the opportunity to attack, but fortunately, she escaped the disaster when other classmates reminded her.
To avoid students being attacked by geese, the school has also developed a mapping software called "Goose Watch", which means "Goose Watch", which shows the distribution of geese in the school to all teachers and students to reduce their attacks by geese.
Now that the number of Canada geese in North America has reached 7 million, and in Canada there are about 4.5 million, why not kill some of them and control the number?
This is because under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, if they are deliberately harmed, they need to go to jail for 3 years and have a maximum fine of 1 million.
If you really need to disperse the geese (not to eat them) and prove that you have not used any method to achieve effectiveness, you can apply to the local wildlife service center to disperse them by firing a gun (not killing).
