I pass by cows just about any time I walk in the village. Going off to school means a trip through cow territory. During my most recent encounter, I had the realization that most cows are sporting horns. Some are well formed and sharp, some gnarled and broken. I have seen some that can look very menacing with horns properly aligned and upright. Then there are other cows that look like their horns are about to grow right into their own face.
Well I was wondering, what are the kind of bulls that people get gored by during bull fights or bull riding? Are those some special breed of cow? Are those cows fed scrap metal instead of grass, are they insulted as calves? If not, what if one of the local cows got up the guts one day to not flee as soon as I am a few feet away, what if one goes insane, or even mad? I am narrowly escaping potentially deadly cow attacks several times a day.
I have planned a defense if the situation should arise. I think a good strategy would be for me to distract the crazed bull with something red (always carry something red) and then hide right behind him. I am working under the idea that cows are not pack hunters and the other cows won't tip off my rival to my whereabouts.
You wouldn't know it to look at this picture but this is a killing machine waiting for the right opportunity to strike. I never turn my back on them, NEVER! You don't know the lengths I went to just to get this picture, I was in the cow's den.
Do you have more questions about cows? Have you ever wanted to know what a cow looks like without its skin or even how much grass a cow could keep in its stomach at one time? Fascinating!
