Video captures aggressive goose attacking and knocking down police officer outside station

A pretty hilarious video of an aggressive goose attacking a police officer outside an Indiana police station has gone viral.

Police in Clarksville, Ind., said Sgt. Det. Ray Hall was walking from the parking lot to the front door of the station because he forgot his keys.

That's when the goose attacked. And attacked again, eventually knocking Hall down and forcing him into some bushes.

Clarksville police Lt. Shane Bassett posted a video of the attack, which was captured by a surveillance camera, on YouTube.

"Detective Hall forgot his keys," Basset wrote. "He then attempts to enter the building and is challenged by our local geese… bad decision."
