HOUSTON -- A Houston girl got quite a scare from an angry goose over the weekend. And photos her sister posted of it are going viral.

These photos are of 5-year-old Summer Gidden. According to her sister, Stevie, Summer came across an injured gosling on Sunday and was tending to it. That's when the territorial mother goose went after Summer.

One neighbor snapped the photos, while another fought off the goose. Stevie posted the pics on her Twitter account, and as of Tuesday night, had more than 43,000 retweets and 57,000 likes on it.

Summer suffered a few scratches, but was otherwise fine.
