    Quote:Yep it is amazing to watch that long neck curve and strike like a snake. If the gander gets a firm grip he will proceed to beat the tar out of the drake with wing blows. he might not survive. I have been grabbed and wind flogged it HURTS! The bruises on my leg took a long time to change pretty colors and finally fade away. laughing now, but never again!
