    “Among all poultry, geese [are known] for being extremely vigilant and having excellent hearing,” Zhang Quansheng, a police chief in Xinjiang’s Shawan county, told the newspaper. The People’s Daily said the “sharp, keen and brave” animals were proving an invaluable tool in Xinjiang’s war on crime and were now being “actively promoted” across the region. Law enforcement agents described the geese as a new “highlight of stability maintenance work” and said they had proved themselves “better than dogs” in tackling crime. “Geese are very brave.

    I see that you've never actually been attacked by a goose. Their beaks are very strong and very sharp and they move very quickly. In other words, they're not easy to get away from and they can inflict a LOT of pain. If you're confronted with a whole flock of geese, the only sensible response is to RUN AWAY. If you've got a gun (which of course are rare in China because it's a civilized country) you might be able to take out a few of them, but while you're doing that, the others will be beating the crap out of you.
