The goose, nicknamed “Gangsta the Goose” by locals, was seen in Daybreak aggressively chasing anyone the bird thought was getting too close to the nest.
June 16 (News) — Residents of a Utah neighborhood said they spent more than a month dodging attacks by an aggressive goose that was acting as a bodyguard for a mother duck and her eggs.
Residents John and Narelle Canaan said they ended up using umbrellas to get gangstas to keep their distance as they left or arrived at their home.
The couple said officers from the local Homeowners Association came to investigate the goose complaints but gangstas chased them away.
Residents said the eggs have now hatched but Gangsta has not left the family – he was recently spotted escorting the mother and chicks to a local lake.
