    Those are NOT ducks, they are GD Canadian Geese, they can run over as many as they want. Useless, they ARE. :)

    Here's the song I thought of while watching this. "You put me high, up on a pedestal / So high that I could almost see eternity ..."

    Geese are incredibly territorial and the males will attack beating their powerful wings (with spurs) onto a person'd body while using their beaks like vice grips and twisting. They like to go for the shins :D They could easily kill a child (and beat the crap out of a slow adult), though no one wants to hear that.

    Geese are a great area denial system. I’ve seen them render entire parks unusable.

    I was playing golf years ago. Skulled a 9 iron across a pond....30 feet max height.....was going 800 miles an hour....hit a goose....knocked him down/out.......about 50 other geese made a perfect circle around him spacing about 3 feet....perfect circle.......he staggered to his feet and they shepard him to nearby woods.....incredible sight......bogied the hole.

    We used to play this 9 hole course after work that had 3 par 4 holes and the rest, all par 3s. One of the par 4s ran alongside the local zoo on the left. I always had problems with slicing my tee shots and spent too much time in the wrong fairway, but one day on the zoo hole, I cranked a viscous hook tee shot that looped over the zoo fence and nailed one of the goats in the gord. The ball velocity was a mere 500mph and didn’t seem to phase the goat in the least. The goat did give me the stink eye as I walked past. Sorry Barney, it was accidental.
