With news of war on the horizon your thread made me smile.
I live in cattle country, open range here.
I vote no on the cow tipping. A neighbor boy hit a bull with his toyota PU. He ended up in a ditch/totaled his PU. A toyota is no match for a bull
but the kid was going fast/hit him hard. He said the bull shook his head/walked off. So unless you're bigger than a toyota PU I say no way.
There was an incident involving a cow on the interstate. The people were doing 75mph, killed the cow, the people survived but were covered in
hair/guts, gross. It would take a great force to knock over a cow.
I've come home late at night/seen cattle bedded down. Especially in winter the herd will lay on the ground, packed together tight to conserve heat.
During spring snows the calves will be right in the middle where it's warmest. I'd dare anyone to make a move towards the herd. Even at night
they're alert on guard.
I wouldn't advise messing with cattle. Open range can make some mean/wild. They might respect/fear dogs but people, not so much. That's why I have a
hard time believing satanists/military etc. are out at night performing cattle mutilations. Those victims would have to be sick, weak or drugged and
good luck doing that in the dark without experienced ranch hands or a squeeze chute.
Maybe tranquilizer darts but in the dark that wouldn't be easy and once the cattle's down the herd will rally around them, you wouldn't stand a
chance without a gun.
Cattle are mean, nasty, stubborn creatures. They charge ranchers that feed/care for them their whole lives, at the very least they'll pi$$/sh#% all
