Goose's Gentle Touch Turns Aggressive German Shepherd Into Playful Dog (PHOTOS)

I love unlikely animal friends as much as the next person, but what were the odds of that one working out?

Geese can be mean as ****. My grandmother used to have some that would guard the front door to her house. I still hate them to this day because they would chase me and bite me. Was afraid of them then (they were as tall as I was at the time so it's like a little feathered dinosaur trying to kill you.) They went after full grown adults too. My dad tried feeding them with a plastic bowl of popcorn and after the food was gone they turned on him and he ended up having to use the bowl to defend himself against them.

I know it wasn't funny at the time, but that visual is hilarious :D

Was funny at the time (at least when they went after dad not so much when they were going for me) to me and still is. More recently is a park in Raleigh where geese hang out and I've seen three hold and entire family hostage on a little island in the pond accessible only by a bridge that the geese were guarding. I went after them as I was a lot bigger then to get a little pay back.

I feel a little guilty admitting this but I used to actively encourage my lab to scare the crap out of them at the lake. I kind of hold a grudge.

The male bull geese are nuts too. A ton of fight in them for a bird. You ding them with a plastic bowl you'd think they retreat but they press that attack like they were trained to.

We used to canoe a river by me that also had a canoe rental place. I love feathers and one day there were at least 10 maybe more beautiful long geese feathers floating in a cove. I had my husband get me close enough to scoop them all up. There were 2 geese watching and of course they headed our way, pretty quickly. All my husband kept saying is you better hurry up their comming. Let me tell you I never paddled so fast, and the geese kept following us up river. My husband said they want their feathers back, I might have throw one back but finally they stopped following us.
My husband used to love telling the rental people the geese love when you feed them.
