Despite their differences, Canada and the U.S. have never gone to war. The closest they’ve ever come is the War of 1812, when the U.S. and Britain – representing their interests in British North America – went to war.
 
To this day, they’ve never been on opposite sides of a military conflict…until now.
 
Recently, a Canadian Goose and an American Bald Eagle – each the national bird of their respective countries – duked it out in a fight that nobody could have seen coming. As expected, the eagle attacked the goose first, perching on its body in an unprovoked display of dominance. As the eagle let its guard down, the goose broke away and managed to flee the encounter relatively unscathed.
