What about being bitten by an Alces alces?

Sounds like someone should have kept their nose out of the department of ruminant procurement like they were told.

She should have told the stag she was a man before the bj.
 
2013-12-31 10:43:25 AM
They kept referring to it as a stag. That is insensitive.
 
2013-12-31 10:44:54 AM
Maybe the stag was her perfect parter.

According to reports, Ms Stone, who is transgender and in 2007 transitioned to become Kate, was standing with a group of friends outside a house in Lochailort in the early hours of yesterday morning when the panicked stag emerged out of the darkness, its antlers piercing her throat and spine.

THIS!

CSB:

Christmas eve, three of the neighbors' steers got out and wandered on to our property.  My inlaws were over for dinner.  It was getting dark which is a good thing in these situations.  The neighbor is out, but I can't let that expensive beef wander off.  As I wander off to push them back in their fence, I just ignore what's happening at my house.  I was busy.  The first two slipped in with no issues.  The dark is an advantage as the little buggers are slightly night blind.  The third was a little more nervous.  Just as I managed to walk him over to the gate, my brilliant father in law had managed to point his truck right at me and hit the headlights.  That already nervous 600lb animal spooked and was convinced I was the source of the evil unnatural light and he was gonna end it.  That's really the wrong way to see a beautiful loin roast.

Fractured shin, bruised femur and a broken thumb.  Christmas eve at the ER is fun.

Why did they post a photo of the stag?

Subby just wanted a chance to use the word ruminant, which is a perfectly reasonable excuse, considering that being gored by a bull under the same circumstances would be even more odd.

Similar thing happened to me with less of the broken bone thing.  The view was all sky,hoof,dirt,dirt,hoof,hoof,sky,sky,dirt not necessarily in that order.

Came to ask why they posted a picture of the animal when the article was about a woman.
 
2013-12-31 11:25:06 AM
That's brutal. Look what it did to her face!

If you were going to wind up being such a hideously ugly woman, why would you even bother?

Many years ago, when I was visiting the Rocky Mountains with family, we were walking near the Banff Springs Hotel. There was a big open field and across the other side, we saw two stags fighting each other. When they ran at each other and locked horns, it literally shook the ground and echoed so loud.  It was amazing to see.

//then saw people walking closer to get pictures *rolls eyes*

When I visited Rocky Mountains National Park, my friends and I stopped at the Glacier Meadow, where a large herd of elk had gathered, so we could take some photos. As we watched, a family in an SUV trundled up to the herd, got out, and began offering them food, Everyone at the meadow's edge gasped, waiting for a bull elk to rip the intestines out of the dad (especially as the elk were in rut at the time). A Ranger had to drive out to tell them to get the hell out of there, that this wasn't a petting zoo, and that the male elk would as soon kill them as look at them. In a way, it's a shame. I could have gotten some pretty cool photos.

I'da been a lot better off, but after he blasted me, I hit the ground and didn't scramble fast enough.  Sure enough, the spitefull damned animal turned around and came back while I was trying to figure out what planet I was on.  Reared up and pounded me with his front hoofs once just for good measure and wandered happily back into his fence.

I learned a few things though, so the whole experience was worth it.  First, my inlaws should never be allowed anywhere near animals.  I think they have a vibe that pisses them off through the air.  Second, it's been far too many years since I handled cattle full time.  I've forgotten damned near everything that'll keep me alive.

I learned to go to college.

On another note NPR had the oddest program on the other day.  This person who is autistic and has a PhD is a some kind of famous psychologist but has also spent some considerable time understanding animal behavior because she thinks in images and has reasoned that so do animals since they don't have language.  So over the years she has written books and even designed new devices for animals.  One such thing was to understand that the reason cattle won't go into a squeeze shoot is largely fear.  She got down at their level and started taking pictures and learned to redesign things by removing the fearful things.  Things like lights shining or slots where they can see movement.  Crazy program but very interesting.  Sort of 'duh' for anyone who understands animals but when she started the research it wasn't such a common idea.  That and she designed her own human 'squeeze shoot' to calm herself down during anxiety attacks by copying a cattle squeeze shoot.

Her name was Temple Grandin.  Go to npr.org and search her name for a series of fascinating shows.

A friend of mine recently posted photos of himself and Dr. Grandin having lunch together, apparently they talked at length about her work with animals. She also has redesigned slaughterhouses to be more humane to the animals by incorporating a spiral entrance ramp, which prevents animals from seeing ahead to what's about to happen, and panicking. She's done some quirky, but amazing and effective things in the cattle industry.

Wow, didn't read the article, just looked at the pic. TG makes sense.

I thought that was just one unfortunate looking woman.
