As I locked my bike this morning, I didn’t realize Agfa was employing new security on the premises. Two Canadian Geese, obviously part of the local anti-bicycle establishment did not approve of my presence.
At first I was chuckling how he was hissing at pedestrian in front of me then as I turned my back (first mistake) to lock my bike the behemoth took flight and swooped at short range for my unsuspecting mullet.
Helmets protect from attacking dinosaurs. This was no bird. A bird by definition weighs about 80 grams and eats from a bird feeder. This beast was at least 40 lbs of hissing fury.
I now have another reason to wear a helmet while cycling, who knows what would have happened. (btw my cell phone camera didn’t quite capture the horror of this beast).
