Hey, Columbus runners - watch out for the geese on the Olentangy trail.
Usually, I just clap at the ginormous pack of geese while running past the campus portion of the trail, and that does the job as they shuffle away from the trail.
Today was different.
There was a small gang of them hanging out on the trail, staring me down as I steadily approached those mercurial fluffy little monsters. I clapped my hands and instead of them leaving the trail, these birdy wankers hissed at me like they were actually Horcrux-y basilisks or a Tom Brady football.
I was a bit nervous at this point and clapped again and made a throttled, failed sort of “Braveheart” yell, but this just angered them more - I then full on panicked and tried running around them.
Bad idea. This one goose took off like Galen fucking Rupp and came right at me (still hissing). I zig-zagged - like Rickon didn’t do - and still ended up getting whacked with its wing while running away, utterly convinced I was going t... keep reading on reddit ➡
While waiting at a red light on English Bay I sadly witnessed a dog chasing geese on the beach and caught one.
Please be advised that juvenile geese haven't grown flight feathers yet and from the middle of June until the end of July the adults are molting and can't fly during this period.
I don't know if anyone knows about the Canadian geese that live in Brentwood park, but... most of them are dead. All the fireworks and shootimg chased them out of the park, and so many people are driving drunk along 21st street and splattering them all over the road. We called the cops- other people have called the cops as well- and they lied about sending a patrol car (we waited for an hour). No one cares about anything that isn't themselves.
This city and its people are despicable...
Yesterday I saw a family feeding the geese by the river. They gave crumbs of something from Tim Horton's so probably something starchy. These can do a lot of harm to them. Let your kids enjoy wildlife as it is and not as pets that you can lure with treats.
EDIT: Since this post gained some traction, before you attempt to defend feeding wild animals or thinking is OK and there is no consequences of it, please visit the following:
Lemme set the scene. You're walking in the park with your SO, and a feathery football shaped ball of anger comes running up and squawking at you, when all you did was mind your own damn business. This little bastard is going out of his way to fuck with you, and that's not what mother nature intended. So you decide to remind this fluffy little shit where he stands on the food chain by punting that bastard like it was 55 yards to the goalposts, and bam. No more goose problem.
But what do we get instead? "Oh nooooo dont hit that goose it's just angryyyyyy" BITCH THAT MOTHERFUCKER FORGOT THAT WE USED TO COOK AND EAT HIM AMD HIS FAMILY. But at some point, we decided that they were gods gift to earth and whenever we saw them in a park or on the side of the road, you should just run away and leave it alone. Fuck. That. I wanna power bomb that bastard so hard that he'll feel like he got T-Boned by an aircraft carrier. If anything, I'm helping the rest of these shitbrained bendy straw neck ass... keep reading on reddit ➡
I mean I know I’m not the only one, I know this sub exists for people like me. But I’m curious if anyone else here gets so excited that they get light headed when they see geese? Like I visit the ones in my area every single day. I love them so much. They cure my depression whenever I’m having a bad day.
I live on a farm, I own it I got it from my grandfather in his will. Great place.
Decided I want to start a small hobby farm.
So i got the animals in the title (over the course of a couple months) they are doing great couldn’t be happier thinking of getting a horse and mini pigs next year (pets)
Anyway my gf of like a year had no idea and never brought it up to her, I figured she knew I’d get animals (it’s a farm after all) and because she spends like 3/4 of her time at my place even though she has an apartment I figured she saw them and didn’t care
But she went out to the barn and saw them and was extremely mad I didn’t think to tell her about them BEFORE i got them because it should have been an “us” decision.
Like I love her and see a future but as of now I don’t see a reason as to why what I do with my FARM has to do with her that I need her permission. If she lived here sure but she doesn’t even live here she just acts like she does (which is fine Ig)
Greetings, curling fans!
as a part of the recent drive to help the Lower Duck Pond Geese curling team get more fans and sponsors and hopefully make it more competitive, the management decided it was high time for the club to get a new, modern identity worthy of the club the Geese strive to be. As you doubtlessly know, the original logo hasn't changed since the team was founded in 1950s, which means it was severely outdated.
The team therefore hired the prestigious local PR agency Chuck, Doug & Yuck to prepare a new visual identity that would include a new logo and uniforms. For a mere 125 thousand dollars, previously earmarked for the reconstruction of our aging curling arena, Chuck, Doug & Yuck delivered designs that were beyond our wildest dreams. We were speechless when presented the designs and the skipper even started to cry tears of joy, saying he has never seen anything so beautiful.
Without further ado, I would therefore like to introduce the new, 2020, sexy, cri... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is one of the strangest things I've come across. I saw another post on this subreddit asking to report this channel and I clicked on it to report the abusive videos. The content is disturbing and sad, the videos titled "knife tricks" show the abuser playing with a knife, taunting geese with it. There are also videos where he just pours soda on geese. More abuse includes choking, hitting, kidnapping geese. On one video I saw an extremely recent reply that criticized the person, telling them they would report them and they should be in jail and the abuser responded. This is what it said:

The neighborhood I live in is (mostly) geese friendly. We have three ponds and lots of tall grasses for them to hide in. Currently, we have about three - four dozen geese of various sizes and ages.
Most people in the neighborhood are fairly patient with them.
-If they are crossing the road while you are in your vehicle, most people just wait for them to cross.
-If they are on the sidewalk while you are walking, most times they tend to just ignore you (unless you get too close to their babies).
Anyway, I say "most" people because there is one lady who is extremely impatient with them.
Today, this lady decided that she was running late for work (at 630 am, mind you) and that the geese were in her way. There were about 6-7 geese standing in the middle of the road (easily enough room to get by if you're patient).
Lady decides to honk her horn for a good 15 seconds (I had to listen to it, as I was out on my run).
The geese? ... Well, several more decided to wander into the roa... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's happened 3/4 times I have stepped into a goose enclosure now.
Dogs got nothing on pigs crows ravens octopuses and raccoons. Squirrels meh. Same with ducks and geese not the smallest but they live long.
A city in Canada spent thousands on dollars on a raccoon proof garbage can but those smart bastards opened it like nothing. They will out smart a dog in a fair fight of smarts. If we spend enough time breeding them I bet that they could solve algebra and love your till you die. Also they will become more lovely as we breed out the agression. If you want because idk about you but a gard raccoon sounds badass and given the fact they have thumbs and shit I bet you could develop and train a raccoon to use a raccoon glock. Imagine dieing braking into a house because a person's gard raccoon popped a cap into your ass.
Pigs big but I think the size and fatness can be breed out. I mean just apply the same blueprints to pigs as dogs and you have a similar sized animal that has less hair possibly last long and is smarter than a dog. Think about it.
