Teen assaulted by landing goose

WINNIPEG -- If only Shawn Hacking hadn't forgotten to duck, he might never have been goosed.

The 13-year-old Winnipeg lad was knocked off his skateboard last Thursday after a Canada goose heading for a nearby pond misjudged its landing and slammed into his face.

Shawn hobbled home with two badly scraped knees, a sprained wrist, a ripped shirt and a red face where the bird's wing slapped him.

Shawn's skateboarding buddy Brent Bruchanski says it funny, but he felt sorry for him at the same time.

The goose just kept going, added the boys.

When he got home, Shawn's mother Kim Hacking was a little horrified at first with how badly he had been roughed up.

When he returned on Monday, he joked with his teacher that he would start working on a rocket project to exact revenge on his feathered foe.

It's geese like these that make goose hunting so popular!

(I wonder if that Honker had a skateboarder stamp?)
