Grouse Attack Photos

May 24, 2010.

A couple years ago, while on a training hike for a sheep hunt, I was stalked, chased, and pecked at by a grouse. Being chased through the woods by a 3-pound chicken was one of the strangest -- and most hilarious -- experiences I've ever had. (The details on my story)

I did some research at the time, and it seemed that grouse attacks during the spring mating season weren't all that unheard of.

I just came up on another recent attack. The victim, a photographer with Field and Stream, took quite a few pictures. He was committed enough to getting photos of the attacking grouse that he even let the grouse get away with drawing blood.
