The British were testing a new bullet train and borrowed a pneumatic cannon from the U.S. used in testing cockpit canopies against errant birds. A goose was fired into the train,shattering the glass and imbedding itself in the operators headrest. Shocked at the poor results, they consulted with the cannons maker to review procedures again. The next round of tests were favourable, having defrosted the goose.I've been spurred by living turkeys AND dropped a 12lb'er on my foot.I think Ill cook the pidgeons I field tested my fishing gear on.
