Try 'goosing' one....if it slaps you, it's a 'she'. If it punches you, it's a 'he'. If it's a white goose, it's a 'honky'. If it escapes, and runs away down the street, you MAY just be in for a 'wild goose chase'.

That's about all I know. Hope it helps....

As long as they know the difference and I don't have to participate, everything's cool.

I don't even care what they smoke afterward.

Very carefully because they can be quite vicious and their bite is definitely a lot worse than their honks ...

Seriously, my daughter (then about 5) was attacked by a large, territorial goose in an uncle's backyard....NOT funny at all. Had several NASTY bites, many bruises, and lots of 'bad dreams' for some time to come. Luckily, no facial damage.

NASTY brutes, when they get angry...

Is this politics, or a contraversy? I guess its pretty contraversial.
