Photos of a 5-year-old girl being attacked by a goose are going viral, thanks to a social media post by her sister Stevie, who witnessed the event.
 
The incident happened in Spring, Texas, near Houston.
 
Summer Gidden was reportedly chasing geese with her friends when the flock decided to beat the child at her own game – they chased back, flying into her hair and knocking her to ground.
 
Humorous photos show a distraught Summer lying on the ground, seemingly yelling for help. But don't worry -- the young girl was just fine. 
 
After posting the photos, Stevie clarified on Twitter that someone did intervene and rescue her sister from the goose's grasp. 
 
"Five minutes after it happened, she was fine. She has a few scratches, but that's all," Gidden told KPRC in Houston .
 
And Summer apparently isn’t taking the incident too hard, telling Houston media outlet KHOU, "It's so funny!"
 
We agree, Summer. Rest assured the Internet is laughing with you, not at you.
