Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 12:49 PM - News flash: Canada geese can be mean. And scary. And downright aggressive.

And they're especially edgy this time of year. Spring is their breeding season, and they won't hesitate to lash out if they feel their eggs or goslings are threatened.

Isaac Couling, a 16-year-old high school student in Michigan, knows this firsthand.

He was competing in a golf tournament over the weekend when he paused to look at a goose nest.

And that's when -- as CNN puts it -- terror rained down.

Couling was apparently caught off guard by the goose that attacked him. He tried to run away but tripped, and that's when the goose moved in.




Photos of the scary encounter have been circling the internet, racking up thousands of shares and comments.

Thankfully, Couling wasn't seriously injured.
