Are geese afraid of swans?
Herein, do swans hate geese?
Swans have been known to actually kill geese. If they get a good enough grip on the goose, its in trouble. Yes, swans put a woopin of geese.
Likewise, do geese feel fear? They have no fear. That may be true, but even if you win there's still a chance you get hurt. There's a reason you can scare off animals in the wild that are bigger and stronger than you, it's because while they could definitely kill you if they tried, it's not worth the risk of injury. Same with geese.
Furthermore, what will scare geese away?
The most effective way to scare geese away is with trained goose-herding dogs. Herding dogs convince geese they are not safe from predators. This should only be done by specially trained dogs working with a handler. Dogs handled properly put geese in flight and the geese leave an area entirely.
Why do swans attack geese?
In reality it is almost unheard of and is never used as a form of attack as swans are a defensive bird. The only time they become aggressive is when they are protecting their nesting ground or cygnets when they will chase off intruders, be they other swans, geese or humans who get too close.
