Aggressive Geese Attacking Parkgoers in Florida

Attacking angry beasts are causing quite a stir in a Melbourne park. They're going after passers-by, city officials, you name it. They even went after one of WESH's reporters. See those geese under the tree right there? They look harmless enough don't they? Don't believe it.

Dennis and Jackie wanted to relax at a picnic table in Melbourne's park -- but their peace was disturbed. They explained, "They were coming at us. One of them tried to bite my ankle.

Gracie came here for a lunchtime run. She says, "They're terrible. They just come after you. I've had to change my route. They're just aggressive.

After the city manager was roughly handled in much the same way, the city put up signs telling people not to feed the geese. Whether that will work is a question, but this problem isn't getting any smaller.
