If you ask any North American the question: “What is the most savage, fearsome animal on Earth?”, you will surely be surprised with the somewhat humorous answer. Not a lion, a tiger, a bear or any of those big carnivores, the answer to that question is: The Canadian goose.
Canada goose – the most feared animal to the people of North America
To the people of North America, geese are animals that seem to have been born from hell and sent to Earth with the greatest purpose of creating chaos. These brave “warriors” don’t care who the enemy is, the only thing they care about is how to crush the opponent in the most brutal way possible. Like honey badgers, Canadian geese will attack any person or animal that comes close, regardless of size difference.
So, in the war between the people of North America and the Canadian geese, the victory was honored by this warlike animal.
This animal often attacks any enemy that dares to come near
According to a recent report from the University of Illinois, methods to scare the common geese seem to have no effect on Canadian geese, and because of this, their territory is tending to become increasingly crowded. more expansive.
Research by Dr Ryan Askren said: ‘When these geese are not harassed, they will choose to leave human areas because it is to their advantage, and have a food source elsewhere that they they want access.
However, if they felt bothered by humans, then there was a reason for them to stay. At the same time, the source of water and food will also be the key factors to determine the movement of this animal.”
Using GPS tracking, the researchers found exactly what the geese do after being harassed by humans. Within an hour of being driven away, they will return to urban areas instead of going to a more remote place as we would like, and continue their familiar activities.
This animal often visits parks or crowded neighborhoods
To explain the reason for this action, scientists have applied Occam’s razor principle. This principle holds that the simplest explanation for an event is the most accurate one, “scrape” away all the irrelevant hypotheses around and the rest will be true.
To put it simply, the only reason the geese return to town is simply that they want something in the area and don’t care about any other obstructions, specifically here the eviction. of human.
Therefore, the researchers note that the only way to get rid of them is to literally “kill” them all, but this does not receive support from the public.
People in North America must accept living with Canadian geese
Overall, just as Australians have to learn to live with ostriches, people in North America probably have to accept living with Canadian geese simply because they don’t care no matter what we do. go on.
Or we can think about the more positive aspects, such as hiring them as bodyguards or housekeepers?
