Though geese can be beautiful when watching them fly in flocks, the truth is they can be a real nuisance to golfers.
And that's without them attacking golfers.
Yes, attacking golfers.

Are you kidding me?
Blissfield Athletics said the golfer was OK, but "his pride was hurt."
Blissfield Athletics explained what happened: "The golfers just finished teeing off and were walking down the fairway. To the left there was a goose nest and the golfers did a good job of avoiding it but the guard goose (hanging out on the far right) thought differently."
Well, well. There's a lesson for all of us.
