Well, sort of.

It was reminiscent of a scene in comedy Hot Fuzz when a 'P.I.Staker' calls to report his swan is one the loose.

In the end it took two police officers to ward off the intruders.

A female officer first tried to shoo the group away, however, she quickly retreats when her attempt backfires.

But one of these geese seems determined to stay put causing another to walk towards it as the officer remarks "its going for its mate."

In the end, the geese are cleared away allowing cars to drive past.

PC Khan, who is based in Halifax, remarked that the last resort was to use the fire extinguisher.

As for the culprits, as one Twitter user said: "Do you think they've relocated them to Peck'em?"
