Honk, flap, pinch


Last Sunday was the annual Gander Fight in Mokrin, Serbia, not far from the Hungarian border.  These fights are NOT bloody or cruel. They only involve a lot of wing-flapping, honking, and pinching.  It's mating season and the ganders are more aggressive to another gander, and are incited to fight with their rival by a lot of honking on the part of the geese.

No goose or gander gets hurt.  They all strut off at the end with, at the worst, wounded pride.

Only pride gets hurt
