The geese are just as nippy as our temperatures this spring, apparently. A Michigan high school golfer was attacked by a goose during the Madison Tournament over the weekend.

According to Blissfield Athletics, the golfers just finished teeing off and were walking down the fairway. There was a goose nest along the way, and while most golfers successfully avoided it, one goose thought Isaac Couling got too close.
Photographer Devon Pitts managed to capture the moment on camera. The Detroit News reports that Couling still parred the hole.
"All the coaches saw it from the clubhouse. You could see it from there. It's pretty crazy. All my friends were talking about it," Pitts told the News.
Geese are territorial birds, and have been known to attack humans if they get too close. If you ever find yourself attacked by a goose, read what to do here in this helpful information from Ohio Goose Control.
