BARTLETT, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South neighborhood is searching for help Monday night after one woman was nearly attacked by wild geese.

It happened Monday afternoon in the Richland Valley neighborhood in Bartlett, Tenn. Sherrie Thomas says she was on a walking trail with her fiancé when geese came out of nowhere; they were trying to get to her small dog, Sasha.

"They walked out of the water and came up at us. And one of them opened its mouth and was yelling and flying towards us," said Thomas.

Thomas' fiancé was able to fight the geese off while she and her dog got away.

They are concerned about the safety of the children in the neighborhood, and are hoping animal control will step in to do something about the wild geese.
