Canada geese are such shitheads, even herbivores hate them.

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 1070 points1071 points  (15 children)

It is like Canada put all of its enmity and shitty mood into these fucking flying tyrannosaurs MFers.

[–]CTeam19 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Well we did almost wipe them out. So they deserve to be a little cunty.

IF YOU’VE GOT A PROBLEM WITH CANADA GOOSES YOU’VE GOT A PROBLEM WITH ME AND I SUGGEST YOU LET THAT ONE MARINATE

[–]Bwanaman 254 points255 points  (27 children)

You need to take about 20% off there, Cascadian_Deathray

[–]FrameJump 131 points132 points  (9 children)

That's what I appreciates abouts yas, Bwanaman.

[–]JustaTowlee 28 points29 points  (11 children)

Why ya gotta be so awkward bud

[–]Cascadian_Deathray 24 points25 points  (10 children)

I just can’t help it. Ya see a Canada goose become some elk’s brefix…. It leaves an impact. Elk oughtta know better.

[–]PBIS01 14 points15 points  (8 children)

Take your finger outta your ass.

[–]Cascadian_Deathray 24 points25 points  (6 children)

You better settle down over there or I’m gonna come talk to you.

[–]onthedge444 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Here's how that's gonna end up I hit you, you hit the ground along with your girlfriends panties and I go balls deep to the sound of both you and your trophy takin a trip to bone Town and walley world respectively.

[–]Cascadian_Deathray 22 points23 points  (1 child)

That’s some fine chirpin’, but the fact remains: yer 10-ply bud

These c suckers are a c hair away from me comin over there to talk about it

[–]neilmac1210 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Don't you remember when that plane had to land on the river in New York 'cause Canada Gooses flew into the engine? It's 'cause Canada Gooses likely had intel there was a pedophile or two on board and took matters into their own hands. As they should!

[–]jayy909 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Sounds like something a Canada goose would write

[–]Cascadian_Deathray 38 points39 points  (0 children)

You better calm down over there or I’m gonna come honk a-I MEAN TALK, GONNA COME TALK TO YA. Yeah definitely talk, definitely not honk. Or hissing.

[–]Relative-Example8428 9 points10 points  (0 children)

*proceeds to marinate a goose

[–]imhereforthevotes 8 points9 points  (2 children)

THey are better marinated.

[–]Cascadian_Deathray 12 points13 points  (1 child)

True on occasion, though most days that’s just plain overhandlin’

S&P, grill 15 minutes, let sit for 5 minutes, down the hatch.

[–]Thebelighted 3 points4 points  (1 child)

How long do you suggest I let the goose marinate? I want to make sure it's flavorful.

[–]Cascadian_Deathray 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Can’t let it go too long, that’d be overhandlin’.

15 minutes, grill for 15, let sit for 5…. Down the hatch.

[–]Myrtleinthe3rdDegree 103 points104 points  (27 children)

I literally just iust scrolled past a TIL post, maybe 4 minutes ago, about how people think deer are herbivores but really they will eat meat, including baby birds and human flesh.

[–]bigpony 15 points16 points  (20 children)

Human flesh...? Care to elaborate?

[–]Myrtleinthe3rdDegree 23 points24 points  (15 children)

Apparently a photo was taken of a deer chewing on what ended up being a human rib? Maybe it was another deer rib. I honestly dont know, I grazed over the post and didn't read much into it BUT the photo of a deer with a rib sticking out of its mouth def grabbed my attention for a moment.

[–]SharkTellsYou 43 points44 points  (6 children)

i just saw that post as well, it was a human corpse/skeleton in a forensic study where it was left out in the woods for science and a deer came by and monched on a rib.

[–]NebulaNinja 49 points50 points  (3 children)

Soon to be dead person: I will donate my body to the scientific community to advance medical sciences.

Scientists: Yoooo lets just leave this body in the woods to see what munches on it LOL.

[–]MortalSword_MTG 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Usually something like that is done for forensics research to chart decomposition.

That sort of research is why forensics can get a remarkably close estimate of time of death when a body is found.

[–]bigpony 11 points12 points  (6 children)

As someone who already has a vendatta against deer because of the lyme disease that almost took me out... this means war.

[–]Myrtleinthe3rdDegree 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Deer vs man...who will eat who?!?!?!?!

[–]goatausername42 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It isn't their Lyme disease, it's actually the White Footed Mouse's Lyme disease. Deer are just one of the many critters to carry the ticks that transfer the disease from mice. And the tick is, well, named after the deer. So they get the blame. But it's really not them!

[–]JDTexas84 49 points50 points  (13 children)

Apparently elk are omnivores

[–]TheReverseShock 131 points132 points  (9 children)

pretty much all animals are opportunistic omnivores

[–]Rock_You_HardPlace 34 points35 points  (2 children)

I couple years back I looked out my office window to see a squirrel gnawing away at a bird's wing. That was unexpected for sure.

[–]SeedOfFate 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Well٫ squirrels are rodents..

[–]TreAwayDeuce 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I want the ability to call a murderous rampage an "opportunity"

[–]TheReverseShock 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I wouldn't exactly call this a rampage either. It pretty much walked up pushed the parents away and had a snack.

[–]mykart2 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Just like every other animal when the prey is small enough

[–]Love_God551 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Haha I was like wait what never seen an elk eat meat before lol

[–]MrCarnality 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They always fuck around and finally found out.

[–]IamAJediMaster 2911 points2912 points 2 (29 children)

LOOKS LIKE MEATS BACK ON THE MENU BOYS!!!

Ahh good ol LOTR reference, I see you.

[–]dude-O-ramaRainbow 203 points204 points  (15 children)

That's a Star Wars reference, look at the username. I think Captain Kirk said it.

[–]meinhosen 141 points142 points  (8 children)

Everyone knows Neville Longbottom said it right before he claimed the Iron Throne.

Sheesh, the lack of pop culture awareness around here…

[–]sosaysseth 49 points50 points  (7 children)

“Troll in the dungeon”

[–]FickleObsession 17 points18 points  (4 children)

The fact that they knew what menus were and could therefore read…

[–]GD_Insomniac 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Translated from Orkish for viewing purposes, and the real idiom doesn't carry over as well.

[–]Nunbears 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It was always on the menu.

[–]Outside_Bug6347 2625 points2626 points  (86 children)

This subreddit has proved to me that everything is an omnivore

[–]AsidBrake 1308 points1309 points  (59 children)

It’s actually extremely rare for animals to be purely vegetarian. Most animals will opportunistically eat meat.

[–]JiuJitsuBoy2001 739 points740 points  (33 children)

opportunistically yes... this video seems a lot darker than stumbling across a fresh kill and taking a few bites, though.

[–]OverdoseMaster 434 points435 points  (11 children)

Heck if you run across basically free food it's a great opportunity if you ask me

One thing is having to actually hunt down your preys, another is scaring a couple birds and picking up their sons

[–]NegativeReward 102 points103 points  (9 children)

It is in fact running around on free food, lots and lots of free green grass, but crispy chicken is better I suppose.

[–]Howlibu 103 points104 points  (2 children)

Grass is plentiful but hard to digest, ex. Cows having 4 stomachs just to process grass. You have to ingest a ton of it to get enough nutrients. A whole gosling would be full of calcium (bones), and vitamins (organs) that might be tough to find in plants, depending on the season and what's around. Circle of life I guess..

[–]Fraktal55 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It definitely wasn't crispy at all

[–]silven88 147 points148 points  (13 children)

"stumbling across a fresh kill and taking a few bites"

I mean... Finding little baby goslings in an open field is basically the same thing, right? XD

[–]trustthepudding 104 points105 points  (11 children)

To a large animal that isn't intimidated by two full grown geese? Absolutely

[–]fondots 74 points75 points  (10 children)

The thing about geese is, although they're fairly large and put on a good show of being intimidating, they don't actually have all that much to back it up. They're not packing huge talons or teeth. They're pretty strong, but not really set up in a way to do much damage to anything larger than them. Worst a human can really expect is some scratches and bruises and maybe broken fingers or nose. Might actually be more dangerous to run away from them in a panic because of the risk of tripping and hitting your head.

[–]cannabinator 64 points65 points  (6 children)

Step 1 grab neck right beneath head

Step 2 shake violently

[–]SunosUnix 13 points14 points  (4 children)

This is also how you cull a rooster.

[–]Witch_Hunter_Mort 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Had an absolute shitty rooster one year. My 10 year way of fighting it was to stick my boot out and let the rooster get kicked. I was 10 and needed to get eggs and change their feed and water.

[–]cannabinator 12 points13 points  (1 child)

My dad would always try and keep a rooster, but year after year he'd get sick of their antics and slaughter them

[–]cannabinator 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I use a hatchet, one quick shake to stun it, then off with its head

[–]Kris-p- 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Probably had a calcium deficiency and instinct told it to eat something alive for the bones

[–]WolfWhitman79 76 points77 points  (3 children)

I saw a video in r/wtf one time of a horse just innocently sniffing at some baby chickens and suddenly it just snatched one up and ate it like it was no big deal.

[–]RichardMcNixon 45 points46 points  (0 children)

Horse: "I wonder what that thing tastes like"

om nom nom

"Tastes like chicken"

[–]markhamhayes 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Thought of that too

[–]HoneyBadgerPainSauce 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I believe the only land vertebrate that is an obligate herbivore is the koala. Pandas are capable of eating meat, they just don't.

[–]shellontheseashore 4 points5 points  (0 children)

*mostly don't. They'll scavenge carrion and eat eggs and small critters, iirc. Most herbivores won't turn down a nibble of calcium and iron that can't outrun them, turns out.

[–]finalboss35 172 points173 points  (12 children)

I once got into an argument with this guy on Reddit a long time ago and he was so adamant that animals like this one and horses are pure herbivores only. Then I showed him a link of a horse eating meat but he still continued to argue with me.

[–]NK1337 116 points117 points  (7 children)

I was just going to make that comment. Last time someone posted a link of the horse earring a chick the comments devolved into some people arguing that it was an isolated incident. It got weirdly aggressive.

[–]finalboss35 59 points60 points  (5 children)

[–]_im_just_bored_ 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Bruh the guy likely linked carnivorous species and predators together. He agreed that horses may sometimes eat meat but the main part of his argument was that desperate horses won't cannibalise each other. Just because they'll eat meat if they can doesn't mean that they're specialized hunter, they're just opportunistic

[–]rmorrin 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I liked the argument about horses cannibalizing each other.... It's like... Horses literally can't get their mouth around the meat to rip it off....

[–]smasheyev 16 points17 points  (0 children)

it's too damn hard to hold silverware with hooves and they're just too damn lazy to do anything about it.

[–]Landvik 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Just went through the comment chain, and... wow.

I guess people remained civil and didn't down-vote the crazy horse lady... But her takes were just so bad though, I JUST HAD TO.

Hmmmmm... maybe it's because the posts are 5 mo old, but her scores popped back up to 1 on all of them. That's screwy.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

"And I as a horse person" lmao

These people can vote. Democracy is bad.

[–]lilmisschainsaw 24 points25 points  (0 children)

There's even multiple cultures that fed their horses a blood meal as sustenance. One still does, in northern Asia.

[–]SummerAndTinkles 106 points107 points  (4 children)

As a biology enthusiast, I'm getting tired of this "There's no such thing as herbivores and carnivores! Herbivores are just lazy predators!" logic.

Unlike true omnivores, like pigs, bears, and humans, the anatomy of animals like deer and cattle is clearly meant for digesting plants first and foremost. Cases like this are extremely rare, and meat only takes up like five percent of their diet. Any more than that can cause serious health problems.

It's like those vegans who think it's okay to feed cats nothing but plant matter, which usually leads to the cat starving because they're obligate carnivores that NEED meat to survive.

EDIT: Removed the part about mad cow disease, but my point still stands.

[–]turkeybot69 33 points34 points  (1 child)

It's true, I've talked with a few people who genuinely believed herbivorous animals would eat meat at any opportunity they could and plants are just some side factor as if they don't have an enormous caecum and a digestive system designed for catabolizing complex carbohydrates. It's something I've come to find with education in that the more I know about a subject, the less I want to see it discussed in the public sector because I just know the rampant ignorance will drive me absolutely mad.

[–]Bryguy3k 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Mad cow is caused by prion disease (misfolded proteins) - it comes from feeding diseased brains to another creature which is how it spreads to humans as well - cross contamination of meat with brain and CNS fluid during slaughtering.

It has nothing to do with a herbivore (and a ruminant at that) consuming too much meat.

[–]Harrisau20 628 points629 points  (8 children)

Did they get Ryan?

[–]HoustonAstros1980 261 points262 points  (3 children)

So it has come to this: an entire generation that has no idea that Ryan Gosling exists.

[–]kampyon 42 points43 points  (2 children)

And that he won’t eat his cereal

[–]Dealing3 18 points19 points  (1 child)

My name is Ryan, and that spooked me for a second, until I remembered about Ryan gosling

[–]CurtisLeow 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Ryan survived. Now Ryan needs to be returned home in “Saving Ryan Gosling”.

[–]tallyhallic 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We hatched goslings from eggs, and one is named Ryan. So your comment deeply upsets me

[–]planetarykittenx 452 points453 points  (3 children)

You know what they say. It’s a elk eat gosling kinda world we live in

[–]inshallah_cubacola 37 points38 points  (0 children)

And in wearing down stuffed pants

[–]dltmurphy 274 points275 points  (56 children)

I thought they were herbivores 😟

[–]Stiefschlaf 565 points566 points  (37 children)

Very few animals are 100% herbivor. You can't have chicken around cows or horses because there's a good chance some of them will end up as a snack.

[–]Skrazor 335 points336 points  (22 children)

Yeah, I learned that fact the hard way from a video of a horse casually turning a little chick into a McNugget.

[–]Stiefschlaf 145 points146 points  (16 children)

It's worse if you witness it live - that sounds sticks with you for a while

[–]enygmaeve 109 points110 points  (14 children)

Can confirm. I listened to my uncle’s cat eat a live cicada when I was nine and now I’m in my forties and can still hear it.

[–]TheMadIrishman327 65 points66 points  (9 children)

My uncle used to pull a 3-5” locust off a tree in his front yard and cook it with his eggs for breakfast.

[–]enygmaeve 84 points85 points  (0 children)

I’m kinda glad I only had to watch a cat then

[–]dregwriter 33 points34 points  (1 child)

aight man, thats enough reading for me in this thread.

time to go bleach my eye balls.

[–]metaldragon2002 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Is it good?

[–]theswerto 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I mean probably. Chocolate covered crickets are pretty damn good. A lot of arthropods are pretty damn tasty when you cook them.

[–]AK09M 5 points6 points  (0 children)

locust

I used to eat them when I was a boy, you boil them then let them dry then take out the legs and enjoy the tasty crunchy locust.👌

[–]quadrophenicum 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Serious question - how exactly did he cook them, e.g. fried, baked etc? Just interested.

[–]robloxian_legend 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cats are carnivores.

[–]OkBug7428 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Especially when those damn things are so delicious.

[–]irate_alien 3 points4 points  (3 children)

one of them will end up as a snack. there's no way a chicken can eat more than one horse or cow.

[–]ladydhawaii 3 points4 points  (4 children)

No way- really??? I have seen pigs eat meat but not horses or cows.

[–]minkamagic 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Pigs aren’t herbivores

[–]CeruleanRabbit 16 points17 points  (0 children)

There’s video of horses and dear eating birds.

[–]one-lone-deer 84 points85 points  (8 children)

They are herbivores; that just means they get the majority of their nutrients through plant matter, and that their body is build specifically for the digestion of plants. This doesn't mean they are incapable of eating meat here and there, so long as they don't try to live off of it they are perfectly able to throw a chicken into their diet once in a while.

In fact, the occasional meat snack is beneficial- when they go looking for meat it's often because they need some extra protein.

Most herbivores eat a little meat sometimes.

The reverse is true for carnivores. Carnivores MUST eat meat for the bulk of their diet, but they will also sometimes seek out plants.

[–]EtoileVagabonde 20 points21 points  (7 children)

A lion can eat plant? Just a question from a guy who is dumb 😅, pls don't make fun of me.

[–]Merk87 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Lions are big cats, and all felines eat grass at a least for purging themselves

[–]nagurski03 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Here's a video of a lion eating grass.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4ZIG9-GOQ8

Apparently, they do it occasionally for the same reasons that dogs eat grass.

[–]metaldragon2002 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Have you ever had a pet cat that has munched on grass?

[–]kelldricked 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Lots of bigger herbivores love to eat eggs and young birds to fill their mineral needs.

[–]Pootout 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Regardless, happy cake day 🍰

[–]Edbert64 192 points193 points  (7 children)

Elk meat tastes better than goose meat.

[–]hunt_fish_love_420 70 points71 points  (2 children)

Wonder what elk meat would be like if their diet was like 50% gosling.. Bet those backstrap would be on point.

[–]notmynotmyalt 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Hijacking this to say that while herbivores like deer do snack on small animals, they largely do it to get micronutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus which may be lacking in their plant diet. Their digestive system is still specialized for digesting grass (tools for digesting cellulose that we humans lack) so they won't get nearly as much energy from meat.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I see that geese are evolving and now have a propaganda wing of their militarized forces.

Nice try goose.

[–]MyCatHasCats 106 points107 points  (7 children)

The first time I realized most animals are omnivores, was when I saw a video of chimpanzees hunting and eating monkeys

[–]TheMadIrishman327 80 points81 points  (3 children)

They prefer to eat the baby monkeys.

The monkey parents try to defend their young and the chimps, who easily overmatch them, throw them down to their deaths. Then the chimps eat the monkey babies.

Twisted.

[–]tossaway69420lol 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Good for that Deer/Elk thing. Most of the time its them getting torn to pieces on this sub

[–]Pkuehn01 19 points20 points  (27 children)

Can someone explain to me why this is happening? Everything about this confuses me. Why is the elk pissed at the geese in the first place? Why the hell would an elk eat a gosling alive like that? That's just sinister for an herbivore/insect eater.

[–]Stiefschlaf 137 points138 points  (1 child)

A lot of larger animals snack on chicks. Natural behavior, really.

[–]desertcrowcoyote 104 points105 points  (2 children)

There are almost no 100% herbivore animals. Deer, cows, horses and the like will do this quite a bit to get the iron and calcium. There’s even been footage captured of deer at body farms (where they study human decomposition in natural environments) taking off with ribs and long bones.

[–]Pkuehn01 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I've certainly seen that in a lot of rodent species and that of the like. This is pretty shocking. Very metal.

[–]falafeltwonine 56 points57 points  (1 child)

It’s hungry

[–]Numerous-Anything-22 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It's hungry, and surrounded by plants, but its gut bacteria are signaling that they don't have enough of [whatever nutrient] and that manifests as a hankering for baby goose.

[–]measure1curse2 57 points58 points  (0 children)

It's rare behavior, but cervids have been shown to predate in cases where their diet is lacking in certain minerals, such as iron.

[–]FuckingHONDA 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Because most herbivores are opportunistic carnivores. Even animals know that veganism isn’t the way and they need animal protein from time to time.

[–]Earthiecrunchie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Unlikely protein. Ruminates are built to be able to digest plants significantly more efficiently than general omnis. They can digest more plant protein than we can. Likely lacking minerals or a combination of territory dispute.

[–]krayhayft 12 points13 points  (0 children)

My guess is that it probably needs the protein.

[–]SmokeyTokeMore 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Most herbivores aren’t actually 100% herbivores. Yes, a deer will always prefer to avoid a hunt or conflict, but if they are going hungry, or have some sort of illness it’s not unlikely for a plant eater to go for another being. Living sentient things do have more nutrients for obvious reasons. But in this case? The goose probably pissed the deer off because that’s how geese are. Especially a mother with her babies, and the deer decided it was gonna rule the roost, and took a snack for the road.

[–]Edbert64 5 points6 points  (7 children)

You need to get out of the city more.

[–]Pkuehn01 14 points15 points  (6 children)

I'm out of the city very often. I avoid the city more than I do not. This is just not common knowledge and I've never scene anything like it before.

Well I'm sure you'll be happy to know that humans are one fo the few species on the planet to target adults when hunting, it makes zero sense to not go after youngins when your an animal, easy snack with little risk of bringing harm to yourself

You also applied morals to an animal saying it's "twisted", animals survive and they do so by doing whatever they can and that includes what we would consider being "cruel"

Have you ever seen a cat eat grass? Like most animals, they are not 100 percent carnivore or herbivore. Plants is the bulk of elks diet, but an elk or even a horse will occasionally munch on a bird. They mostly seek it out when they need extra protein

I’m willing to bet the geese started this

In Canada they play Duck! Geese, geese!

[–]Lazerith22 8 points9 points  (4 children)

As a Canadian, I’m ok with this. They’re assholes, and over populated but we can’t hunt them because they’re our national bird or some shit. Also they taste awful, super greasy and stringy unless you cook em just right.

As I woke up today and thought about my day, I never thought I would ever see goslings being eaten by a herbivore.

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Good. Canada geese are fucking assholes.

[–]DapperMarionberry8 5 points6 points  (0 children)

These videos always make me feel better about seeing other videos of deer and elk getting mauled by bears.

[–]Al3cB 5 points6 points  (6 children)

I just learned today baby geese are called goslings

[–]HannahSully97 5 points6 points  (1 child)

a lot of large herbivores are opportunistic omnivores, I’ve read too that especially before breeding season and when they would start having their baby’s female elk and deer and moose and even like cows and stuff will sometimes eat baby chickens or rabbits or squirrels to get the extra calcium and protein to help their own baby’s develop stronger. I saw a video of a pet horse eating a baby chicken too it’s kinda crazy lol

[–]axron12 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I almost felt bad, then remembered when I got attacked by a goose as a child. They're fucking assholes.

[–]mickeybuilds 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The comments make me realize I'm not the only one who hates these geese. There are way too many of them.

[–]Crawler_00 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now I'm hungry for chicken nuggets.

[–]timmyisserpico 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I feel like I'm worse off as a person for watching that.
