As Canadians, we all know that Canada Geese are not to be messed with. As youngsters, it's a Canadian right of passage to foolishly approach a Canada goose only to have it turn evil in the blink of an eye.
But to be honest with you, the video below truly shocked me. I knew Canada Geese were evil, but I didn't realize they were cold-blooded murderers.
And before you start to stick up for the species, take a look at the video below and tell me that bird isn't a ruthless homicidal maniac.
I did some digging to try and find out some more info on this showdown, and this Reddit post seemed to indicate the murdered bird was a "Caspian Tern."
The original YouTube video post also indicates that this incident occurred in Kitchener, Ontario.
Caspian Terns are gull-like birds that are one of the largest terns in the world, according to AllAboutBirds.org. You can find them throughout most of the United States and some Southern parts of Canada, particularly throughout the Prairies.
Of course, it's safe to assume that the Canada Goose in this video is probably a mother bird protecting babies or a nest, but still...
Look at how proud it is after the deed is done. Flapping around like a show-off, hoping other nearby birds now know exactly who they're messing with.
Canada Geese, can be found all across the Americas, so essentially none of us are safe from these devil birds... or "cobra chickens," as I've taken to calling them after reading a tweet featured in this article.
I mean, I want to be proud of this national animal, but when they act like such dickheads, what am I supposed to do?!
I just simply can't condone bird-on-bird murder.
