It's unbelieveable how much power these bastards can mobilize when it comes to food.
I saw it in Kenya years ago how they attacked a gazelle.
Great picture.Excellent

 Spurwing geese are in fact the biggest geese in South Africa. They are quite full up in the western cape wheatlands. Takes a full load of SSG to bring them down. Hits the ground with a thud! A lot of guys take them on the ground with .222 or .243 etc.

I'll take my chances in the air vs swimming with them.
