She said: “We think someone has dumped the new geese as two of them have been tagged with orange round numbers. They just appeared among our gaggle of geese that we have in the village about four weeks ago down by the field. I got an email from a lady saying 3 geese have appeared and she asked me if I knew anything about it. I contacted the rest of the councillors and nobody knew where the geese had come from. Upavon, a rural village in Wiltshire, is well known for the flock of seventeen domestic geese that have peacefully lived side by side with the locals for decadesCredit:Wessex News Agency A flock of unruly geese are causing havoc in Salisbury, as local residents say they are “living in fear” after complaining that the birds are biting children and chasing them off the school bus.Upavon, a rural village in Wiltshire, is well known for the flock of seventeen domestic white geese that have peacefully lived side by side with the locals for decades.But last month three ‘rogue’ geese made a new home for themselves in Avon Square and have disrupted the everyday routines of the 1200 local residents ever since.There have been multiple reports of geese attacking parked vehicles, hurting family pets and preventing locals from getting to work by blocking their cars.The birds, which are believed to be ‘farmyard’ white geese, were spotted by a concerned villager who noticed orange tags on two of their legs four weeks ago.Mandy Wernham, a Parish councillor who lives nearby, is hoping that a swift solution is found so that the geese are stopped from “terrorising the neighbourhood” any further. “The other morning I had to sit in my car in my dressing gown when I came back from dropping my son at work at about 6.30am. “They surrounded the car and I had to wait for them to go away before I dared get out. The other geese, the flock that has lived here peacefully for years, cause no problem at all and are very popular with villagers.”“The other day I saw the geese chasing children after they got off the school bus.The poor children had to run for their lives and other people have been bitten,” Ms Wernham added.The councillor took to social media to try and get advice on how best to deal with the intruders.Ms Wernham has appealed for people not to feed the geese in the hope they will move on.She said: “I think at first they tried to join the other geese but they were not having any of it so they have moved up here and they are quite nasty. The three of them are terrorising the neighbourhood and attacking cars and people alike.”It is believed that a local farmer, who has been having a problem with foxes attacking his livestock, may take them as ‘minders’ to protect his chickens.
