If I'd been around to catch the person who (trespassed and) left the pasture gate open at my in-law's the one time, I'd probably have at least menaced with a firearm. Having to round up 800+ pound cows is a biatch, especially in hilly terrain. We were just lucky the cows didn't actually wander out that time.

Just sounds like two guys with a beef about some bull shiat.

It's New Hampshire. Mess with some farmer's girlfriend and you should know what's coming...

This must be more of that polite society that comes from being an armed society.

Three shots were fired, two into the ground at the feet of the man he was arguing with and one into the air, said police.

I hope he told him to dance because that would be cooler.

A non-judgemental description of a male bovine, so as not to bring up the term "Cow Boy", which would provoke snickers from the younger/demented segment of Fark

A cow ain't worth killing a man over. Now, a hog, on the other hand...

Cattle guard is the way to go.

Cattle rustling is still alive and well and we still occasionally hear about a late night dust up over it. Hoping that the practice of using RFID at cattle sales is making a dent in it.

True Story -

Summer of 1976 I'm a Coca Cola delivery driver during summer college break. Boulder, CO. My route included Peak-to-Peak highway and a stop along the way was Caribou Ranch, the fabled recording studio of Jimmy Guercio (home to Chicago, Elton John, Super Tramp, Joe Walsh and many many more).

Jimmy loved having cattle on this 4,000 acre ranch complex and one day after delivering (and having my sack lunch in the meadow facing the bunk-house dining room watching CSNY practicing Suite Judy Blue Eyes on the deck) I drove my Ford 900 back down to the main gate Ranch Gate and had to negotiate something like a hundred head of Limousin cattle to open it. They were milling around all the way down there for some damn reason.

I swing open the gate to drive through and the GD cattle ran for it. (curse words)

I run after them and at that moment a converted school bus painted all psychedelic pulls over and a bunch of hippies pile out and start helping me shoo the cattle back towards the gate and off the highway. 20 minutes later all the cattle are back behind the fence line, and my truck is on the right side of the gate. Whew!

I grab a couple of flats of cans and offer them to these genuinely nice people who saved my bacon and this one tall guy after saying thanks and handing off the flats to a girl says "C'mere. Got something I wanna show you."

I walk with him to the bus and he reaches inside and turns around with a GD .44 cal Cavalry revolver pointed right at me.

See, back in the day when I ran that route just about all my stops paid me in cash, so it wasn't unusual for me to have a couple of thousand on me in small bills.

1. That's a big damn hole when you're looking into it. 2. I froze. 3. I didn't pee or poop myself, because my mind pretty well blanked out.

Then he says "Whaddya think of this thing? We found it in one of the mining cabins we stayed at last week. Pretty cool, huh?

And flipped it around and handed it to me.

He'd cleaned it. Found cap and ball at a hardware store in Nederland. CO (that's what he said), and we stood there shooting at trees for a few minutes and that is one damn powerful pistol. Then he says goodbye, gets back in the bus and off they go on their merry way.

That's my story of guns, cattle and open gates.

And ever word of it is true.

My in-laws don't run a commercial operation; probably no more than 40 head of cattle at the highest count. They recently sold all but 8-10 0f them (I don't know the exact number). Definitely not bothering with RFID since other than the bi-annual freezer destined, they just sell them to an auction house when the herd gets too big.

So basically it would make it really easy to grab a few head in a truck late at night (half mile down the road on non-residential property) and take them to the butcher the next day.
