This just in
My co-worker ***** was attacked today by a Canadian Goose that has taken up residency in our parking lot. The goose initially jumped on her car, then as ***** was walking up to the building the goose took flight and smacked ***** in the head and shoulders with its wings from behind. Luckily a co-worker alerted ***** to the bird coming at her.
For self-defense, I'm leaning towards recommending a tennis racket over a baseball bat. The racket is lighter, so would be easier to wield with one hand. Also, the bigger head makes it more likely to make contact.
