Don’t mess with a Canada goose.
A taxi driver apparently learned that the hard way when one of the ornery birds smashed through his cab window, leaving the vehicle covered in shattered glass on Monday.
Police shared a photo showing the goose perched in the back seat of the car amid a pile of glass and what appears to be goose poop.
“When a colleague asked if a call had been received about a goose flying into a taxi over the radio, we had to see it to believe it,” police tweeted.
The goose was apprehended at the scene and transported to a veterinarian. BBC reports the goose only required a checkup.
“Unfortunately, the taxi had to repair the damage,” police tweeted.
They added that perhaps the glass-smashing goose was en route to Goose Fair, a local Nottingham carnival that arrives annually around this time.

A few Twitter users linked the incident to Untitled Goose Game, a popular new video game in which gamers play a goose that causes all kinds of trouble in a peaceful English town.
“Looks like someone was influenced by a certain horrible goose game,” one person tweeted.
“It’s a lovely morning in the village, and you are a horrible goose,” another wrote.
“I think I will cause problems on purpose,” another user tweeted, quoting the game.
If that was the Canada goose’s intent, then mission accomplished.Follow @JoshKElliott
