Geese, and it wasn't as funny as it sounds. They are very territorial and quite fearless.
Oh, yeah. Not wild animals, but people with their gosh darned dogs that they don't leash.
Nothing like being out for a morning run and all of a sudden there is an aggressive dog chasing you down the path, with its owner frantically chasing after it and trying to call it off.
I don't understand why people wouldn't leash their dogs in public. Seriously.
Bears etc? Anyone?
