These reckless geese couldnt care less if youre enjoying a leisurely Sunday punt along a river.

The angry birds chose a group of tourists as their targets in Cambridge – and the results are hilarious.

Two men ended up soaked to the skin after they were dive-bombed by the birds, which caused them to fall into the River Cam.

Two Japanese tourists got more of a soaking than they bargained for after they FELL IN after they were dive-bombed by a flock of GEESE while punting in the rain in Cambridge today (Sun). The two men fell into the River Cam after the birds knocked them off balance as they flew across the water to land on a nearby college lawn. The tourists, who were dressed in smart trousers and shirts, had to swim to the riverbank after their impromptu soaking, as their friends looked on. The group looked glum as they were left stranded in their punt as their paddle started floating down the river.

Dramatic pictures capture the ridiculous moment that they were knocked into the water by the geese.

Fortunately, the men from Japan were able to see the funny side and were pictured laughing and joking after they managed to haul themselves out.

The rest of their group could only watch as they drifted away down the river.

The geese knocked the men off balance and they fell into the water and had to swim out.

They looked very fed up at first because it was raining so they were already wet, but afterwards it looked as though they were able to laugh about it.

It will certainly be a lasting memory of punting in Cambridge for them.
