Is it ok to kick a goose when it's trying to steal your sandwich?

I had to eat, a goose doesn't understand that it's not about all the geese, it's only about me, I had this sandwich, which was as normal and imitation as you can get, while in a disability boarding house on a field trip to a pond, I was eating it and a goose wanted to eat my sandwich, I was vegetarian and didn't think I should kick a goose but this gander (I'm pretty sure it was male) has gone too far and I kicked it, walking away eating my sandwich, is it OK?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I've been scared of them since I lived on a farm where the ganders guarded the geese sitting on their eggs and chased anyone who came anywhere near them.

    I'm much more scared of emus: those huge beaks are right at a human's eye level

  • I don't condone violence on animals I think you should of tried scaring it off first by making yourself appear big and chase it off. If that hadn't worked I would of left the pond area or on the very last of my list of what I'd do in that situation , I would of done what you did. Remember that geese don't know of boundaries and were after your sandwich purely for hunger/survival reasons

  • Completely fine. Animals work off the rules of nature. If you don't do anything then the goose will just think you're a complete bitch and continue stealing shit off you. If you show dominance then it won't. I saw one video where these guys were just getting repeatedly head-butted by a goat because they didn't want to do anything back to it. It's madness. Animals can be dicks too, and need a appropriate response to stop that kind of behaviour.

  • Too bad that you are a vegetarian. You could have eaten the goose. What makes you think it was a male? Every woman believes that any food is theirs. That's why they eat off of everyone's plates while saying that they are not hungry.

    • Was a vegetarian, I'm not a vegetarian any more, and that's because when I eat, I want to be full and satisfied, especially when a diet I got from the internet meets my demands, and hence the conflict with my mother. :D

      • You didn't say was "A" vegetarian, you said you "was vegetarian". There is a difference between those two sentence. And where does the conflict with your mother come in. You never mentioned her at all. Were you on drugs too?

        • You can read all about it in OP's long rambling unpunctuated post: personally I couldn't be bothered even trying

        • She disagrees with that diet of mine but would lie in all insincerity (with no Freudian slips) that there's nothing wrong with it, it's perfect, when in the first place she told me not to eat like that, but when I told her I'm buying that food in my shopping, and that I don't care if she thinks it's bad, or if she dislikes it, she's been dishonest with me and she was giving me a hard time with this diet all because it has no love and compassion. What the hell? It's my nature to think with the brain not the heart, it comes from a nutritionist. Therefore if I was vegetarian then I was a vegetarian, in my definition it means the same thing, only "a" makes it a noun and no "a" makes it an adjective. And when I used to be a vegetarian I wasn't on drugs. Was is the past, so was vegetarian doesn't mean am vegetarian.

  • Yeah, it's ok. Geese can be annoying af.

    Seriously, if a bunch of ducks are near you, they'll mind their own business, quack, eat stuff and go in and out of any nearby water... But geese, if they see you, they will almost immediately charge at you. Sure, they can't hurt you, even if they bite you it's like a slightly annoying pinch, but it's the aggression that's the most annoying.

    My grandmother used to have geese that respected her, but would hiss and honk at me. I was a kid back then and was a bit scared. My grandmother told me if I lightly kick the geese everytime I walk into their pen for a few times, they'll get the message and calm down. Guess geese are just stupider and angrier than ducks...

    • Agreed... I had this geese with my ex that would as soon as it saw me would come near me and start honking/hissing/chuckle it would do this when I'm not paying it any attention or havent fed it yet, and when I talk its honking (whatever you call its call) would be so fkn loud it would be louder then when I talk (which can be hard as I'm pretty loud sometimes lol) and is so fkn annoying that to try and stop it from happening I had to stamp/throw something at it/kick it but it never stopped it from doing it next time.. I wanted to get rid of it so bad but the idiot ex wouldnt let me :/

  • I shot a goose with a bow an arrow once and we found it floating dead on the lake the next day.

  • I fucking hate geese. They're rude as fuck. My parents had a parrot who was the fucking devil and one time he tried to bite my baby. So I punched him in the face. It may not be normal, but you got to protect what's yours.
