We’ve all had a frustrating driving experience when it comes to geese. They’re the worst because for some reason, as you know, they like to hang out on major traffic routes. There’s not much we can do about that..
But If you’ve ever had one of those weird encounters where the goose is kinda pissed and you don’t know how to react to it, we’ve got some answers!
For some reason geese are very stubborn and not scared of much, so they can be kind of intimidating when they’re spreading their wings hissing at you.
Barret Miller from Fort Whyte Alive says if you simply back down, the goose thinks it owns you and might start chasing you…So stand your ground, square up to the goose, and it will back down. Square your shoulders and look that son of a B in the eye. Be the bigger goose!
Once you’re the bigger goose, step back while still facing the goose. Step back until the goose chills out, then walk around it.
Yeah, it’s lots of work to avoid the stupid bird, but if you don’t you could end up like this dude…
