Mad Scientist: "Cow"? "He"? ...
FuzedBox: After all this time being completely domesticated, it's amazing that they can revert to a feral state in a single generation.

Winterssnowykiss: Using your 9mm handgun against a 2,000lb+ beef bull? Good luck with that. There is a reason a lot of farms use AI to breed their cows. Even dairy bulls can be nasty.

Hilary T. N. Seuss: Since it needs to be said:Don't kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, he'd eat you and everyone you care about!
hobnail: Dunno about these cows but there are certain breeds that I wouldn't turn my back on. In particular there's a Charolais bloodline that's meaner than hell. The ones I'm thinking of tend to be smaller and hold their heads up high, ears out. The cows are more agressive than a lot of bulls from other breeds.
macdaddy357: You're confused, dude! Cows are girls. Bulls are boys.
FLMountainMan: A guy sees a feral animal whilst hiking and gets scared. News at 11.hobnail: Dunno about these cows but there are certain breeds that I wouldn't turn my back on.

The cows are more agressive than a lot of bulls from other breeds.Charolais are one of the bigger breeds. I saw a herd in Saskatchewan where the bulls were six feet at the shoulder. Pretty intimidating.
OK So Amuse Me: As someone who's worked cattle, I find this hilarious. Although if they have never worked around cattle or other ranch stock it's really best if they don't try to interact with them because there's a good possibility they will get mangled!A bull/cow can and will trample and/or gore you if they feel you are a threat, two bulls don't give a tinkers damn about their surroundings when they are fighting, they will not look out for or try to avoid you. but, especially if you have a cow with a calf! Momma will end you if they think you are too close to their baby. A greenhorn will invariably make the worst possible choice when in a bovine vs. human situation. I've seen grown men run from a 'stampede' of month old calves then decide he will stand there and "intimidate/scare" a two ton bull... they have no 'critter sense'.If you find yourself in a situation where you are faced with a pissed off bovine clear the area as quickly and as quietly as possible. There is a reason we have corrals with many pens and gates and equipment like whips, cattle prods, lanes and squeeze chute's, you have to divide to control. It also helps to be able to 'read' an animals intention, and this is a skill you can only pick up if you have contact with them often. I can tell you more about what a horse is thinking or thinking of doing by looking at his ears than most people can by observing the whole horse.
