Canadian here, don’t fuck with a goose unless you have a gun. My dog knows that best, he’s terrified of them on the streets, but when it’s goose season and I’m holding my 12 gauge, he’s all about supper time!

I've heard they can break a coyotes back but I have a hard time believing that.

Maybe under VERY specific circumstance, but I doubt a hungry coyote is stopped by a bitey bird. It doesn't have a sharp beak, or even talons. All the coyote has to do is get a good bite on a wing and start thrashing, or get at the (very fragile and exposed) neck.

Well I was told the goose can do it with a wing strike. But like I said, really hard to believe.

What’s the cheat code for an angry bird wing strike?

Nah when they get in close to smack you with a wing you grab them by the neck right under the head and lift them up and hold them there for a bit. They get the message and will leave you alone though you might have to repeat it a time or two. Had aggressive geese at the farm.

I can confirm this tactic is effective on emu's also (minus the lifting). Just watch out for the flailing claws.

Truly, you learn something new every day.

Seriously though, trying that with a ratite, you've got some Trump sized balls on you. One mistake and you're bleeding out from multiple flesh wounds
