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.

Damn the horns on those bulls are pretty messed up. One almost looks like it was going to re-enter the cranium.

After all this time being completely domesticated, it's amazing that they can revert to a feral state in a single generation.

See!  Simpsons was right.  Better send that cow to Bovine University!

'But when he saw a feral cow on the same trail a few months ago, Turcaz was unable to shoo the beast. He uttered loud noises. He made himself appear larger. But methods that would scare away a predator didn't work with a 2,000-pound bull and its harem of about 20 cows.

"I started slapping my hiking stick and the calves and the females took off running but the bull turned toward us. I had never encountered mean cows. When he finally retreated up the hill he never stopped looking at us," Turcaz, 42, recalled.'


a cow looked at you and it's newsworthy? you are the king of the pussies

this must be a joke

Install an "invisible fence" underground wire around the park and put in a human-shy pack of wolves with shock collars.

Reintroduce wolves into the area and the problem sorta takes care of itself.

Isolated LORAN station Sitkinak, AK. You were not allowed to hike on the "other side of the island" unless you took a rifle. The ferel Bulls protected their ferel cows, at high speed, starting a a range of about a half mile.

Well, go hike somewhere else.  Or don't exhibit aggressive behavior toward larger animals.

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.

Keep a bottle of steak sauce and a pair of grill tongs on you to show them when they start looking at you funny. That'll learn those delinquent bovine beeotches.

Open the area up for a Great Northern Spikehorn Moose hunt. I hear they are quite tasty.

If the ranchers get upset that their stock isn't coming back for the ride to the slaughterhouse, let them maintain their fences. That'll make 'em jolly.

Sometimes that cow, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a cow, he's got... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'...

So he's never heard of a bull before? Granted some breeds might be a little more docile, especially if they're handled by people regularly, but I thought it was common knowledge that bulls can have attitude.

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.

A guy sees a feral animal whilst hiking and gets scared.  News at 11.

Charolais are one of the bigger breeds.  I saw a herd in Saskatchewan where the bulls were six feet at the shoulder.  Pretty intimidating.

Cattle. The plural of beef on the hoof is cattle; that way you can include bulls.

/They should auction off a beef safari here, instead of having those assholes go shoot a rhino in Namibia.

Santa Gertrudis are pretty aggressive. The ones in that park appear to be some kind of shorthorn mutts.

Yup, what he said. My 2 uncles lived on adjoining properties and they raised simmental cows together. Never had too many problems with the bulls, but this one cow with a crumpled horn (long story involving a device called a horn puller) hated kids and wanted to crush us all. They also had an evil rooster that would run up kids backs and peck you in the head, but that is another story altogether.
