I now consider eating beef a form of self defense!
Would that be “Ruminant Rage”?
I now consider not eating meat a form of insurance against attack by cow. They talk amongst themselves, I’ve been informed. :)
Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance vice president Jason Vogel called the incident “odd, rare and random.”
My thought: “Oh, really?”
I think it would be “Bovine Brutality”
Cows are relatively easy to keep in. If the feed (grass) is poor they may want to jump or knock down a fence, or raging hormones can motivate a wandering cow. Otherwise given water, and a little shelter from the wind cows are content, usually.
I once had a huge Herrford cow that had a messed up cycle, and every 19-20 days she would ‘jump’ a 4.5 foot fence (half tear it down) looking for love. We sold her.
Unrealted: Us rurual bike commuters have it best. I have 1/2 my 40 mile round trip commute on nearly empty country roads. Eat your heart out and watch for the cows.
Or maybe “Mad Cow Dis-ease”
In Scotland, I was once chased into the ocean by a Highland bull while walking on the beach. It was especially inconvenient because it was January, so both the ocean and air were cold. The bull kept me in the water for a good 20 minutes (he wouldn’t come in after me, fortunately, even though I was only in up to my knees) before he lost interest and wandered off to join the rest of the herd…I had to wait until he was out of sight behind a headland before I could get out and make my way to the nearest pub to dry out and warm up. I’ve had quite a few encounters with recalcitrant cattle in Scotland and Ireland, where they’re not fenced in and frequently block the road. Even if you’re in a car they’ll often just stand there and stare at you while you beep your horn or rev your engine. It teaches you patience.

the little dog laughed to see such sport, the dishwasher ran away with the spoons, the cow jumped bail,
bailed hay could’nt hold a candle to the greener gas on the other side of the fence.
