A cyclist appeared to ruffle a goose’s feathers as he rode along a river channel after the bird flew at his head and knocked him off his bike.

The risky moment was subtitled by a Go-Pro that the cyclist was wearing on his head, with the 30 seconds video Then shared on Reddit.

Alongside the clip, which the cyclist shared on the r/CasualUK subreddit, was a caption that read: “Goose chose violence.”

He continued: ‘This morning I’m going to work my usual route and this damn goose decides that today is the day he’ll have me free. So it was.

In the footage, the cyclist, from Stoke-on-Trent, can be seen peacefully riding to work along an eight-mile route along a path alongside a river canal.

While trying to pass the birds, one of the geese lunged at the man’s head, causing the cyclist to fall off his bike and onto the ground.

The confused traveler seemed to lie on the ground for a moment, with the irritated bird still in sight flapping its wings.

After cautiously getting back on his bike, the man sped away to safety along the river channel.

The video has racked up more than 280 likes and 56 comments from bewildered viewers, who mocked the cyclist for the unexpected attack.

One wrote: ‘Damn, I really wasn’t expecting that, I thought you were going to swerve to avoid that first duck.’

Another joked: ‘You didn’t assert your dominance or defend yourself. You just ran away,” while a third added: “At least it didn’t take you straight to the canal!”

Meanwhile, another Reddit user added: “To be fair to the honker, an unknown entity was approaching them haha. They are real bastards though and you can usually drive slowly past them with nothing but a warning whistle”. .’

The cyclist responded: “I can usually get by with little more than a whistle to which I usually respond with shit on my part.” I’ve been traveling 8 miles along the canal to work on and off for 8 years and this is the first time someone has decided to pounce on me.’

Sharing his own friend’s experience of an unwarranted goose attack, one person wrote: “My friend, a huge muscular man got cornered in a shed where there was a goose and only managed to get out with the lid of a garbage can and a broom”.

“Anything that attacks with its face is a force to be reckoned with.”

Meanwhile, runners in Scotland have been told to wear helmets to protect themselves after an angry vulture attacked a 47-year-old man, leaving him covered in blood and with “six holes in his head”.

Ewan Cameron was running near his home in Frockheim, Angus, in May last year when a vulture swooped on him. He described the attack as if someone “hit you in the back of the head.”
