As the guy who was recently drowned by a swan would tell you, had he lived -- or any farm boy who has tangled with a goose will admit.

Wild turkeys are also something that will surprise even an adult human, should he just happen to grab one not thoroughly dead -- that said, it seems that when even the small-ish Mr. Fox gets his jaws around that long skinny neck, it is all over but the flopping.
