College student injured by aggressive geese

A William Paterson sophomore is recovering from injuries she says are from a goose attack on campus.



Ellen Camacho says she was walking to class when she heard two geese coming up behind her. She says they suddenly began to fly toward her aggressively.



"I threw myself to the ground to see if they would go over me," she says. "Rather than go over me, they decided to fly on top of me. I was motioning them to get off me, flailing my arms, and eventually they did."



Camacho suffered a sprained ankle and cuts on her legs and knees. She says she wants other students to be careful and avoid the aggressive birds.
