Jerk ordered to pay $500 for mowing down Canadian geese family with truck

Last May, a video made the rounds on social media showing a person plow a white pickup truck plow through a family of Canadian geese in an OKC neighborhood, ruthlessly killing a little gosling in the process.

KFOR’s Peyton Yegar filed a follow-up on the story yesterday. She reported the crime was committed by an asshole named Scott Hannay. He pled no contest to charges of “Hunting With the Aid of a Motor Vehicle” and was hit with a $500 fine.

You can watch the original video below, but you may want to avoid it if you have a soul or compassion for migratory birds. Sure, geese can be assholes, but these little guys were just trying to make it south for winter. Leave it up to someone in a giant white fleet truck to decide to plow through a family of animals for no other reason than trying to get a Frappuccino and then argue with the barista about how they’re not wearing a mask because they “can’t breathe.”

Dude just rolled over a flock of cute geese and is getting off with a shallow $500 slap on the wrist. That’s probably how much he pays to fill up his gas tank every month.

It reminds me of the time I was driving down 23rd street and saw this massive Suburban crush over a stray chihuahua. The dog was lost, had a collar, scared. It was in the middle of the street, didn’t know where to go. And this dumbass in an SUV destroyed it.

We stopped in the middle of the road, traffic piling up behind us. I tried to pick up the dog and it bit the shit out of my hand. Frightened, dying, endorphins flaring. A stranger stopped behind us and got a blanket from the trunk of his car and we swaddled the dog and moved him to the side of the road.

As soon as we set the dog down, his last gasp of air left his broken body. Picking him up killed him faster, but maybe that was for the best because he was obviously in so much pain, the blood flowing free throughout his organs, outside his skin, his ribs and spine crushed into a mishmash of bones.

We sat there and watched the small dog rapidly die while calling the phone number on his collar. Afterwards, I washed and wrapped bandages around my punctured hand and cried about this senseless death, deep red blood swirling down the white porcelain sink. Some child’s beloved animal companion, gone forever. A trauma they’ll remember their whole life.

Okay, so a wild goose getting plugged isn’t the same as a pet, but still – be kind and respectful to animals. If you’ve got a problem with Canada gooses you got a problem with me and I suggest you let that one marinate.

  1. There is a special place in hell for people who do things like this to animals.


  2. This guy lives on one of the lakes in The Meadows at Riverbend near Council and Wilshire. Geese can be an nuisance but what he did is sick. I know Scott a bit and I was shocked when I heard it was him.


  3. Leave it to some stupid ass redneck hick to be heartless and impatient enough to run down a family of migratory birds.

    The hypocrisy in all of this is that Michael Vick had to serve two years in federal prison for torturing and killing dogs, yet this dipshit only has to pay a $500 fine. He should serve a bare minimum of three months in the county jail, and also be placed on an animal abusers list, similar to the ones that we place sex offenders on in this state


    1. I like your idea of an animal abusers list. Public shaming is a better deterrent than a fine is for rich assholes.


    2. I would not call it hypocrisy. Michael Vick got off way too leniently for what he did to those poor dogs. That man is evil. However, justice was not served with a $500 fine here either.


  4. Karma is a bitch, and this jerk has it coming back to him.


  5. FYI, they are Canada geese, not Canadian geese. See https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Canada%20goose


  6. Sometimes I’m ashamed to belong to the same supposedly “human” race as someone like SCOTT HANNAY, a name to remember. I surely wouldn’t want someone that soulless to date my daughter. Of course she has better taste than to hang around with someone like that.

    We see lots of Canada geese here on the lake, and sometimes it seems that they are nothing but assholes, pooping all over the place. They can be really noisy at night if a fox or coyote approaches their overnight accommodations.

    My crazy neighbor tries to drive geese away from her shoreline with a BB gun. Then she puts out raw chickens to feed the foxes, although the geese that she drives away are nature’s own fox food. Crazy.

    Regardless, it’s still a thrill for me to see the beautiful critters flying around.


  7. Fuck those fucking geese, they shit all over the sidewalks and chase children and cause multiple traffic accidents every year. They had it coming.


    1. Looks like Scott Hannay pulled a Kevin Durant to create a burner account to try and justify his disgusting behavior. Fuck you.


    2. Scott, is that you?


  8. He should have a few days in the pokie. Maybe a one year suspension of access to all federal and state public lands. And definitely a lifetime ban on receiving hunting and fishing licenses.


  9. I once dodged a stray dog, only to nearly careen out of control. I’ll never do that again. If an animal runs in front of my car (other than say, a horse or a cow), it’s splatter time. I’m not totally heartless though – I’ll at least try to make it a solid impact for a quick kill. Now as far as those flying rats go…


    1. Animals jumping onto the road is one thing. Looks like this specimen just didn’t care. Swerving for deer and other large(r) animals is, indeed, not a good idea, but reflexes often override logic.


    2. This was a suburban neighborhood, slow traffic, and, unbelievably, sidewalks?? Slowing, stopping shouldn’t be a big problem.
      I’ve got grandkids smaller than the adult goose, and maybe dumber, bless their hearts. I’d appreciate you not going for the quick kill.


  10. A neighbor of mine murdered some swans 40 plus years ago when he was a juvenile. The story was splashed across the local newspaper. The kid got probation and records were sealed. I saved the newspaper story from 40 plus years ago and the kid during his adult years has been in trouble with the law. If you are punk as a juvenile, chances are you’ll never change in adulthood


    1. Animal cruelty, especially among juveniles, is known to be a warning sign of serious criminal violence later in life.


  11. OM Goodness! what a dick!!!


  12. This was my neighborhood. I hope I never see this dude. What a shame someone who is capable of such cruelty lives in such a great neighborhood with wonderful folks. He belongs out in the backwoods where people think this is ok. Thankful for security cameras. Everyone has them now Scott. Duh.
