OWASSO, Okla. — Orange cones are marking off the area at a Target location in Owasso where an aggressive goose is nesting.

The caution cones advise shoppers to avoid the area, as the goose will approach and aggressively defend her nest.

"Do not approach nest. Geese aggressively defend nests and can inflict injury with their beaks and wings. Watch for warning signs, geese will pump their heads up and down as a sign of aggression as well as hissing and honking at threats."

The manager of the store said it's the first year they've had a nesting goose out front.

The goose hasn't attacked anyone yet, officials said, and it has not been named.
