They would nest beneath the bushes that lined the walkways. A lady who lived across the street would get attacked by them every time she walked to her car. Twice a day her husband would be out there with a broom beating them back so she could make it to her car unscathed. Dunno what they had against that lady, but they hated her. I would have to kick them away from my dog when we would go for walks, they would attack him, go for his eyes. More than once it was so bad I had to go in and grab a baseball bat to beat them back with.
They were canadian geese, and still on the state list of protected species (god knows why, there were more of them than there were us humans), and we were in an area considered to be nesting ground (though they stayed there year round). This meant that the management couldn't do anything about them. Couldn't even put up audible alarms to scare them away. We were basically left to fend for ourselves.
After that experience, I would not hesitate to shoot a goose if it touched me.

I've hunted geese for 15+ years, and even caught a live healthy canadian goose with bare hands, and a person should be just fine defending against a single goose without having to draw and fire. If it was me, I would grab the goose by the neck and swing it around a couple times. Problem solved
