HOUSTON -- A 5-year-old in Houston had quite the scary close encounter with a goose over the weekend, according to KTRK.

Summer Gidden was playing outside Sunday when she came across an injured gosling, according to her sister Stevie.

When she went over to check on the gosling, its mother attacked.

A neighbor snapped photos of the attack while another fought off the territorial goose.

The photos went viral after Stevie posted them to her Twitter account.

Summer only suffered a few scratches in the attack, but she will probably never want to see a goose again.
