Goose Attacks Woman Who Steps Too Close to Nest at Jacksonville Parking Lot

A Canada goose swooped down on an unsuspecting victim at a parking lot in Jacksonville, Florida, after they took a step too close to its nest.

Footage shared to TikTok by Victoria Willard in March shows a woman throw her things to the ground after being ambushed by the goose, who Willard said was protecting its nearby mate and eggs.

Shortly after the goose attacked the woman, another parking lot patron can be seen approaching the geese and getting into his car — which he manages to do unscathed.

The car distracts the goose, and the woman can be seen seizing the opportunity to run over and pick up her belongings.

Willard told Storyful that she began recording after her supervisor said he was attacked while walking to the building, and she wanted to “see if it would happen again”.

An update posted by Willard to TikTok on April 16 shows a gosling walking around with the geese in the lot. “Finally! Now we can get to work safely each morning,” she wrote. Credit: Victoria Willard via Storyful
