Incredible photos show precise moment when a high school golfer was attacked by an unhinged goose
BLISSFIELD, Mich. - In Florida, they have alligators. In Arizona, they have rattlesnakes. In Michigan? Here's a tip: stay as far away from the geese as you possibly can.
A southeastern Michigan high school golfer learned his lesson the hard way Sunday, April 22, after a Canada goose randomly attacked him as he was walking down the fairway of a golf course.
According to a tweet from the Blissfield Athletics account, the group of golfers had just finished teeing off and were walking down the fairway and there was a goose nest to their left. The golfers did a good job of avoiding the nest, but the guard goose apparently thought differently and attacked one of the golfers, causing him to fall to the ground.

In a series of three photos, you can see a frame-by-frame account of the goose flying towards the golfer. In the second photo, the golfer is seen falling to the ground with the goose on top of him with his mouth open and about to attack. The third photo then shows the golfer with his body in an upside-down position with his feet in the air and head touching the ground, the goose, meanwhile, begins attacking him.
Luckily for the golfer, he was able to escape the goose attack without suffering any injuries.
"Just his pride was hurt," the school's athletics Twitter account said.
